Smart on Crime: Recommendations for the Administration and Congress

Smart on Crime:  Recommendations for the Administration and Congress
I’m pleased to let you know that The Sentencing Project today joined with more than 40
of the nation’s leading criminal justice reform organizations to release a comprehensive
report examining the nation’s criminal justice system.

The new report, Smart on Crime: Recommendations for the Administration and
, reviews federal policy and offers recommendations for reform in 16 key criminal justice areas. These include sentencing policy, juvenile justice, reentry, and overall systems change.

The Smart on Crime document will be used in our advocacy work with members of
Congress and the Administration as we try to advance our agenda for reform.

I hope you find this publication useful in your work. I’d encourage you to be in touch
with our Director of Advocacy, Kara Gotsch, at to  discuss how we can support your efforts in the area of policy reform.
