Default Please call on wednesday

The Senate will be voting on the Nationl Criminal Justice Commission that will look into better treatment of prisoners. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is a national call-in day. Please consider calling your two senators as well as the two leaders (reid and Mcconnell) tomorrow. You don't have to say that much. There receptionist will really just mark the number of people that support it. It's a numbers game so all the calls matter. Thanks!

Dear Friends:

On Wednesday, October 5th, NRCAT is joining other groups from around the nation to sponsor a National Call-in Day to urge the Senate to pass the National Criminal Justice Commission Act, S. 306. This bill would create a commission to conduct a long overdue review of our criminal justice system. NRCAT believes that this review would lead to positive changes in the treatment of prisoners, including, potentially, a recommendation to limit the use of prolonged solitary confinement.

On Wedenesday, please call the Senate leaders, Senators Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, and ask them to prioritize passage of the National Criminal Justice Commission Act, S. 306.

Senator Reid: (202) 224-3542
Senator McConnell: (202) 224-2541

Message (please feel free to modify as desired):

Hi, my name is ___________. I am calling to ask the Senator to prioritize passage of the National Criminal Justice Commission Act, S. 306. The National Criminal Justice Commission Act would create a commission to identify ways to improve the criminal justice system. Such changes would improve public safety, improve prisoner treatment, and save money.

Thank you for helping us support this important legislation.

Rev. Richard Killmer
Executive Director, NRCAT
