    My experience helping train the next class of Advocacy Corps organizers

    Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to help train the newest cohort of Advocacy Corps organizers from all around the country. This year cohort will be organizing their communities for the next ten months to lobby Congress to stop the militarization of police.

  2. Action Alert Sentencing Reform is Key to Disrupting Mass Incarceration 

    In meetings with Congressional leaders, President Trump has indicated that he supports sentencing reform as a part of criminal justice reform. This is a positive step, but we need to build on this momentum and remain vigilant.

  3. Action Alert Invest in Alternatives to Detention As a Solution to Family Separation 

    Ending family separation does not mean that we must expand family detention.
