1/ In “How the Biden-Harris Administration Can Advance Criminal Justice Reform," we lay out 13 recommendations that the new administration can implement to make progress towards the justice system that Americans overwhelmingly demand. fairandjustprosecution.org/wp-content/upl… Image
2/ In a year that brought unprecedented progress for reform-minded prosecution, fairer drug policy, & better policing practices, President-Elect Biden "will enter office with a mandate to transform the justice system.”
3/ "The new president will have the power to advance many of these recommendations immediately upon assuming office, although we have also outlined opportunities for the new administration to build on executive actions through collaboration with Congress."

1/ In this new op-ed in @NBCNewsTHINK, @innocence co-founder @barryscheck & FJP’s @miriamkrinsky discuss the critical role elected prosecutors play in both preventing wrongful convictions and addressing past injustices through Conviction Integrity Units. nbcnews.com/think/opinion/…
2/ “A September report from the National Registry of Exonerations...found that prosecutorial misconduct...played a role in 30 percent of cases between 1989 and 2019 that later resulted in exonerations.” @exonerationlist law.umich.edu/special/exoner…
3/ “[R]eform-minded prosecutors across the country are establishing Conviction Integrity Units that work cooperatively with defense attorneys and innocence organizations...to determine whether prior convictions were, in fact, miscarriages of justice."

1/ 64 elected prosecutors issued a joint statement today affirming that they will not prosecute abortion decisions, even if the protections of Roe v. Wade are eroded or overtuned. Read the statement: fairandjustprosecution.org/wp-content/upl…
2/ "[A]s prosecutors we should not and will not criminalize healthcare decisions such as these – and we believe it is our obligation as elected prosecutors charged with protecting the health and safety of all members of our community to make our views clear."
3/ “In our view, resources are better utilized to prevent and address serious crimes that impact our community rather than enforcing laws such as these that divide our community, create untenable choices for women and healthcare providers, and erode trust in the justice system.”

America is the only country to condemn children to die behind bars through juvenile life without parole (JLWOP) sentences. Read this new @JJIEnews op-ed from @miriamkrinsky, Buta Biberaj, and Carol Siemon on ending JLWOP: jjie.org/2020/10/12/pol…
“Our system is sadly predisposed to see the humanity in white children more than children of color; approximately 70% of children sentenced to life without parole have been Black since 2012.”
“By one estimate, as of 2018, 2,500 people were still serving life sentences imposed for grievous mistakes they made as children.”
