Increase Public Safety and Save Money? I'm in!

Comprehensive criminal justice reform could increase public safety, save millions of dollars, and give each non-violent offender a second chance.

Over 95% of those incarcerated in Wyoming will eventually be released from prison, so we must consider what to do with these individuals while they are in the state’s custody.  Research tell us that lengthy sentences for non-violent, low-level offenders may actually increase the threat of future offenses.  Alternatively, equipping non-violent offenders with the tools to become responsible members of the community can maximize long term public safety and minimize state spending on corrections.

Dictatorial Behemoth

Refugees fled years and years ago from poverty and an oppressive government into the unknown and landed on new shores which were mysterious and harsh to them. They took that huge risk to escape persecution and have the opportunity to choose their own paths. Some of those people suffered terribly in their new land and were unsuccessful. Most, however, thrived in spite the difficulties of starting with almost nothing. And few of them would have chosen to return to their original homes. The opportunities for freedom, choice and hope were irresistible.
