Tell Your Legislators: “Massachusetts Needs Sentencing Reform Now!”

Call script:

Hello, I am calling today to urge you to support sentencing reform in the conference committee on criminal justice reform. Mandatory minimums lock up too many nonviolent and low-level offenders at too high a price. These laws destroy families and communities and must be repealed. I urge you to pass bold sentencing reform in the Commonwealth this year. I understand that this committee plans to reach a compromise between the House and Senate’s bill. I urge you to fully support the sentencing reform measures included in the Senate’s version without compromise. Though far from perfect, the Senate’s legislation will move us closer to a balanced and effective justice system.

Mandatory minimums have failed the Commonwealth for too long. It is time for them to go.

Thank you.
