Support criminal justice reform
Action: Urge your senators to support S. 2123, the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act.

End family detention
Action: Send a letter to President Obama urging him to end family detention. Background: Last year, more than 60,000 mothers and children fled their homes in Central America and came to the U.S. seeking asylum (another 60,000 children traveled without a parent). A combination of factors have contributed to this migration, including domestic violence, gang violence, drought, and poverty in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.
