by prison and high levels of incarceration.
We all want safer communities, reduce
crime, anti-gangs and for those returning back into our community, successful reentry (job, housing and health care), however,
in order for this to happen, our lawmakers must not only be smart on crime, but fair
and responsible. Mistakes made must be corrected.
We’ll talk about and take onsite direct action in support of
remedies to mistakes, misapplied and
systemic thatincludes Fishback, Sentencing Guidelines, Parole Board
decisions, Geriatric and 3-Strike Release
