Press Release

FreedomWorks Joins Nation’s Largest Transpartisan Coalition for Criminal Justice Reform

An unlikely alliance of progressive and conservative groups has formed to pursue an aggressive effort to reform America’s criminal justice system. The Coalition for Public Safety will be the largest national effort working to pursue comprehensive criminal justice reforms that will reduce jail and prison populations and associated costs, and end the systemic problems of over-criminalization and over-incarceration.

Support the Kenneth P. Thompson Begin Again Act, H.R. 1924

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to cosponsor the Kenneth P. Thompson Begin Again Act, H.R. 1924. Introduced by Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and Van Taylor (R-Texas), the Kenneth P. Thompson Begin Again Act would eliminate the age requirement for an individual seeking to have his or her record expunged for a first-time drug offense.

Support the Clean Slate Act, S. 5047

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Clean Slate Act, S. 5047. Introduced by Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), the Clean Slate Act would create an automatic sealing process for certain federal criminal records, including simple arrests without conviction, and a streamlined petition process for sealing other criminal records to promote successful reentry into society.

Issue Brief: Reforming Bail and Pretrial Detention

One of the cornerstone principles of the Western legal tradition is the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Over the last century, the imposition of bail requirements for accused offenders has flipped that presumption on its head, frequently making pre-trial freedom contingent on cash bail amounts well above the ability of an average citizen to pay. This issue brief explores how this came to be and aims to set out principles for states to use in reforming their bail guidelines. The goal is a return to a system that truly serves both justice and public safety.

Support Senate Bill 3 to Reform Ohio’s Sentencing Laws

On behalf of our activist community in Ohio, I urge you to support Senate Bill (SB) 3. This bill reforms Ohio’s sentencing laws for low-level, nonviolent offenses and focuses limited prison resources and severe, mandatory minimum sentences for high-level drug traffickers. FreedomWorks supports this approach. To this effect, our activists have sent 27,207 messages in support of Senate Bill 3 to Ohio state legislators over the past year and a half.

Issue Brief: Reforming Probation and Parole Supervision

The latest in FreedomWorks' series of issue briefs on important topics in criminal justice reform examines judicial supervision - probation and parole - in the states. Offenders who receive probation sentences or who are released early under parole supervision are often thought of as having "gotten off easy." The reality is that in many states, judicial supervision systems have become so overwhelmed that they are neither helping offenders transition to normal life nor keeping the public safe from those who re-offend.

Americans Must Not Dehumanize Each Other As We Work for Justice

Protests in response to the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor are certainly understandable. The anger and frustration is real, but intimidation, looting, and violence are not acceptable nor constructive ways of expressing this. The scene of mobs surrounding politicians as they were leaving the White House after President Trump accepted the Republican nomination was disgusting. The scene should be prompting mob protesters, as well as Democrats who have encouraged these confrontations, to reconsider their tactics.
