Add Your Name: Pass the EQUAL Act
Dear Senator Grassley,
Our faith calls us to recognize Christ in others. In that spirit, we Catholic Sisters in Iowa express our strong support for the Eliminating a Quantifiably Unjust Application of the Law (EQUAL) Act (S.79/H.R.1693) introduced by Representatives Hakeem Jeffries, Kelly Armstrong, Bobby Scott, and Don Bacon in the House and Senators Cory Booker and Dick Durbin in the Senate on January 28, 2021.
The EQUAL Act has bipartisan support in the Senate with six Republican cosponsors and six Democratic cosponsors. We applaud these Senators for supporting needed reforms that will eliminate the disparity in sentencing for cocaine offenses, a major contributor to mass incarceration, and urge you to join them in supporting the EQUAL Act bill.
Iowa Sisters, add your name to help end racist sentencing disparities!
