Description: This resolution expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that the federal government should begin a large-scale effort to reduce incarceration rates and reshape the American legal system by consulting with communities and individuals directly impacted by the justice system; decriminalizing certain behaviors, increasing diversion opportunities, revising sentencing laws, and reducing practices that contribute to recidivism; ending practices that advantage the wealthy and prohibiting private companies from profiting from the criminal justice system; and ending militarized policing practices, investing in other safety services, and implementing policies that address the needs of communities most affected by high rates of incarceration.
