The First Step act plans to altogether lessen the quantity of individuals in the nation’s prisons within the following 10 years. It also gives judges more discretion with regards to sentencing guilty parties for nonviolent crimes, specifically drug offenses. The bill with support from both Republican and Democratic individuals from Congress will likewise sustain restoration programs for previous detainees who intend to turn their lives around after they serve their sentence.

We think we can launch what will be the most impactful foundation within criminal justice reform and create a movement.”
