Advocate for a just criminal justice system 


Calling on your elected officials to reform United States criminal justice system and to enact just policies is critical. Loving our neighbor can take many forms, including advocacy. This is also one of the ways we can steward our voices to make a broad impact on many people’s lives.

Visit our Action Center for specific ways to advocate for a just criminal justice system.
