An unlikely alliance of progressive and conservative groups has formed to pursue an aggressive effort to reform America’s criminal justice system.

Red State Redemption: Ten Conservative States That Have Led the Way on Justice Reform

In the early 2000's, many of the states which had enacted the harshest mandatory sentences and "tough on crime" laws were also facing budget crises and desperately overcrowded prisons. In response, lawmakers in state like Texas, Georgia, and South Carolina started to reexamine the entire purpose of their criminal justice systems, and even became leaders in the national push for criminal justice reform.

Issue Brief: Reducing Occupational Licensure as an Obstacle for the Formerly Incarcerated

The number of jobs that require a government-approved license has exploded in just the past few decades. This increase in occupational licensure is problematic in its own right, as it reduces competition and access to jobs for those who cannot afford the time and/or money it takes to acquire a license to work.

First Step, Second Chances

BY Jason Pye

The momentous criminal justice bill passed last year, the First Step Act, is already bearing fruit. Thousands of nonviolent offenders tried under federal laws and sentenced to obscenely long sentences with no chance of parole are closer to breathing free air again. Earlier this year, more than 2,200 federal prison inmates were released and many more have had their sentences significantly reduced.

In the more than four years since the publication of this issue brief, several states have passed reforms to protect innocent individuals from civil asset forfeiture. There has also been a case at the Supreme Court that touches on the issue.
