#JobsNotJails

SEIU, PVP and N2N (Jobs Not Jails coalition) are hosting an action on May, 11th to bring attention to the Justice Reinvestment Act. This bill will help reduce the number of people who are incarcerated in our state and re-invest taxpayer money into long term solutions.

What the Justice Reinvestment Act does:

  1. Ends mandatory minimums for non-violent drug crimes and restores judiciary discretion to determine sentences. 
  2. Eliminates probation and parole fees for indigent people that keeps them in poverty and adds time to their punishment.
  3. It increases the dollar amount for felony larceny from $250 to $1500 preventing the creation of felons from people charged with low level offenses. AND-- 
  4. Improves CORI and other laws to increase court efficiency, workforce participation and re-entry success. 
What can you do? Call you legislator today and ask them to support the #JusticeReinvestmentAct. OR get involved, team up with Neighbor to Neighbor, SEIU or Pioneer Valley Project!
