New Petition Calls on Democrats to Prioritize Ending Mass Incarceration

WASHINGTON - Criminal justice reform has never been a formal priority of America’s two major political parties, and a new petition released today by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law aims to change that.

Criminal justice reform has played prominently in the election this year. The Republican Party is set to vote on a policy to reduce imprisonment at their convention. If they do, they’ll be the first major party to do so. The Democrats lag behind.
