"LET THE PUNISHMENT FIT THE CRIME."

A Mother's Plea: “My son will die in prison if these mandatory minimum life sentences are not changed.”

Sentences such as the one Audrey Hudgin's son received are inhumane, tear families and communities apart, and waste tax dollars. And he is barred from rehabilitative programs and gain time. Read more from Audrey Hudgins.

VOICES FROM THE CAMPAIGN

For decades, Florida has relied on incarceration as the solution to criminal justice issues, costing taxpayers millions without increasing public safety.

"We believe reducing the prison population and creating safer communities can be done at the same time."

NEIL VOLZ
Political Director, Florida Rights Restoration Coalition

"Our system locks up far too many people for far too long. We can't ignore racial disparities any more or enact policies that make them worse."

Shalini Goel
Senior Supervising Attorney, SPLC Action Fund

"With 95% of people incarcerated in state prisons being released back to their communities at some point, we owe it to ourselves to rehabilitate rather than warehouse prisoners. Let’s incentivize instead of dehumanize and chose people over punishment."

DENISE ROCK
Executive Director, Florida Cares Charity Corp., dedicated to improving the lives of the incarcerated
