Sign the petition to support smart on crime, soft on taxpayers reforms!
Americans for Prosperity-Mississippi is committed to helping break barriers through a wide range of public policy reforms, including essential areas of criminal justice reform. While these aren’t new issues for our organization, they have a renewed importance and urgency during this time.
Mississippi now has the second-highest incarceration rate of all states. During this year’s legislative session, our state missed a pivotal opportunity to make meaningful improvements that would make our communities safer and allow for more Mississippians improve their lives.
Reforming Mississippi’s criminal justice system shouldn’t be viewed as a partisan issue. Our lawmakers must move our state forward in a smart on crime, soft on taxpayers direction that will save our state and taxpayers money, make our streets safer, and ensure more Mississippians can contribute to their communities.
Only by tackling these areas will we see the critical policy changes that Mississippi needs and make the necessary progress in protecting our communities and unlocking second chances for people who want to become positive, productive members of society.
To show your support for critical reforms to our criminal justice system, please sign our petition today!
