With 40 years of experience helping restore men and women behind bars, Prison Fellowship advocates for federal and state criminal justice reforms that transform those responsible for crime, validate victims, and encourage communities to play a role in creating a safe, redemptive, and just society.
In 2016, the bill, SF 3481, sought to provide more effective sentences for individuals charged with a drug crime and reinvesting savings in treatment options for those with substance abuse problems.
