Please support--and promote--#GONELONGENOUGH on all your social media.
#GONELONGENOUGH stands for a number of criminal justice and prison reform issues, including:
1. Lowering all federal (and state, if applicable) sentences to 65% of time served;
2. Abolishing mandatory minimums;
3. Fair sentencing based on actual harm caused to the community (i.e., a murderer or even a drug dealer cause more actual harm to the community than many prisoners with victimless crimes who are serving much higher sentences and postrelease restrictions. No sentence or restriction should be higher than for those criminals who cause the most actual harm);
4. Criminal justice and prison reform, in general.
We've made the First Step. Without a Second Step, there is no real progress being made in criminal justice reform. Let's move forward together in criminal justice and prison reform. Make #GONELONGENOUGH that Second Step.
