Our justice system should rehabilitate, not just incarcerate.
America has 5% of the world's total population, but 25% of the world's prison population is incarcerated within our borders -- the vast majority in prison for nonviolent offenses. That's not justice.

He's standing up to say that rehabilitation isn't just better policy -- it's a moral imperative. Will you stand with him?
Tell members of Congress: our justice system should rehabilitate, not just incarcerate.
