- Fight Overincarceration in Illinois – Illinois now incarcerates more than 48,000 people in state prisons, the 8th highest prison population in the nation. While other large states across the U.S. have implemented a number of reforms that have reduced their prison population in recent years, the State of Illinois’ prison population has ballooned to more than 190% of capacity. It is time for action. Contact your state representative and state senator and demand real action–not just more words–on fixing our incarceration system.
- It’s time for marijuana reform – Illinois should join the list of states that impose a civil fine for the possession of small amounts of marijuana. It’s a policy that makes sense because it is fair, it is likely to save the state money and a majority in the nation support reforming our marijuana laws. Tell your state representative to support marijuana reform in Illinois.
