Stand with Cory Booker: America has a justice problem

Our country has departed from one of its bedrock principles: that America is a nation founded on second chances at opportunity.

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.

I've introduced the REDEEM Act, which will give Americans convicted of nonviolent crimes a fair shot to reenter society, find a job, support their families, and reach their potential.

Tell members of Congress: our justice system should rehabilitate, not just incarcerate.
