2021 Legislative Advocacy Team Sign-Up
Join our push to make progress during the 2021 session in Illinois!
Your home address is required so we can match you to your legislators, but we will not send you mail or share your address with anyone.
What am I signing up for?
Upon joining, we will send you all of the contact information and social media profiles for your State Senator and State Representative.
1. Throughout the legislative session (through the end of May, 2021) we will send you a weekly (or less, depending on what is going on) action to take to build a relationship with your legislators around our core issues this session:
*** Giving judges discretion when they apply gun enhancements - this legislation would ease what has been a major driver of extreme sentencing and over-incarceration in Illinois
*** Updating Illinois's legal theory of accountability to give judges the option to give shorter sentences to individuals who have less culpability in a crime
*** Giving all Illinois youth the opportunity to be considered for early release when serving adult life or de facto life sentences
*** Making a previous law to give judges more flexibility when sentencing youth in adult court retroactive
*** Creating a point of contact for families and loved ones within the Illinois Department of Corrections
2. Optional weekly Zoom "check-ins" with RJ staff members on Fridays at 10:30am to receive details on the action of the week and/or to share progress, stories, challenges, and ideas.
3. That team feeling! Occasional swag and recognition! Knowing you are part of the effort to make Illinois a safer and more just state!
