Jan 13, 2016 — Folks,
Last night during his State of the Union address, President Obama reinforced his commitment to work with Paul Ryan and other Congressional Republicans to pass criminal justice reform as soon as possible.
The momentum for reform has never been greater, but the clock is ticking. With more than 15 criminal justice bills waiting for a vote in the House and the Senate and a heated election just around the corner, Congress needs to hear your voice.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Change.org and Alicia Keys to launch the #WeAreHere for #JusticeReformNOW movement page - to put pressure on Congress to act in 2016.

We also made it easy to spread the word. Just click the links below to share:
When we launched this petition, more than 90+ celebrities and 110,000 Change.org users signed on. 12,000 people signed our petition in just 30 minutes! Now, we need your help again. Your voice will help encourage Congressional leadership to move these bills forward and help us put the best possible solutions on President Obama’s desk, while we still can.
Americans are fed up with the status quo and NOW is the time for action.
