Sentencing Reform

Today, almost one in 100 people are incarcerated in the United States. America’s prison population, which has increased by five hundred percent over the past thirty years, is the largest in the world. For over a quarter of a century mandatory minimum sentences have resulted in harsh punishments which often do not fit the crime, have racially discriminatory outcomes, increase overcrowding and exacerbate prison costs.
