Faces of the American Freedom Initiative's National Pardon Project: Crystal Munoz

FreedomWorks recently announced the launch of the American Freedom Initiative (AFI), a collaboration headed by former acting U.S. Attorney General Matt Whitaker. This project aims to help relieve injustices committed against Americans under the criminal justice system and the regulatory state. As part of this project, we will shine a spotlight on some of the individuals the AFI has identified under its National Pardon Project as being particularly hard hit by unjustly harsh criminal sentences for non-violent crimes.

New Legislation Would Place Prisoners on Path to Success

BY Jason Pye and Lauren Krisai

All across the country, at all levels of government, Americans are changing the way they think about the criminal justice system. Just this month, President Trump launched his first official campaign ad during the Super Bowl, and chose to focus his message on criminal justice reform. That he chose to run his first major ad, which reached over 100 million viewers, on criminal justice reform shows just how popular this issue has become.

Steering the Criminal Justice System Toward Rehabilitation Using First Step Act

BY Luke Hogg

Written following his return from 10 years in Siberian exile, Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” follows the story of Rodion Raskolnikov as he grapples with mental anguish after killing a pawnbroker. Dostoevksy struggles with many ethical dilemmas that plague criminal justice, including deep questions about the efficacy of imprisonment and the process of redemption. Centering around the dichotomy between formal and informal punishment, the questions that Dostoevsky contends with are issues that still bear enormous significance on how we choose to seek justice.

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.
