Dear Members of the United States Senate,
Next week, you'll have a chance to pass the First Step Act. If it is passed, thousands of federal prisoners would have access to more help preparing for life after the end of their sentences. Thousands of well-behaved prisoners would win freedom earlier. And thousands of people who are arrested for drug crimes in the future would become eligible for exemptions from harsh mandatory minimum sentencing laws.
As people of faith across the country who believe in a God who never tires of forgiving us, we urge you to vote "yes" on this crucial piece of legislation.
