Mississippi has the third highest incarceration rate in the nation.
There are better ways to prevent crime than filling our jails and prisons. Mississippi’s imprisonment rate is 57% higher than the national average, and yet crime has been falling more slowly here.
We deserve meaningful criminal justice reforms affecting bail, sentencing, and supervision. By making changes we can expand opportunity and reduce our incarceration rates.
Sign the petition to tell Governor Bryant and Lt. Governor Reeves to support HB 1352 that includes the criminal justice reforms Mississippians deserve. It’s crucial that we demonstrate support for HB 1352 to legislators and to the Governor.
