Take Action Today & Urge U.S. House Leadership to #PassSenateJFAANOW !

Today, the Innocence Project and its supporters from around the nation are participating in a day of action to urge the U.S. House of Representatives to pass (S. 2577) Justice for All Reauthorization Act. This crucial legislation provides funding and support for vital programs such as the Kirk Bloodsworth Post-Conviction DNA Testing Grant Program, crime laboratories and forensic science. In sum, this measure has the potential to allow the wrongfully convicted to prove their innocence, to provide closure to crime victims by identifying the truly guilty and to strengthen public safety.

In June, the Senate passed this legislation, thanks to the bipartisan efforts of Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and John Cornyn (R-TX). It is now up to the House and its leadership to advance (S. 2577) the Justice for All Reauthorization Act, and we’re counting on our allies—people like you—to urge them to do so! Your voice is critical. Call on our country’s leadership for better protection of the innocent and support for crime victims.

Please contact the following members of the House leadership and tell them to pass (S. 2577) the Justice for All Reauthorization Act.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) – (202) 225-0600

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) – (202) 225-4000

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) – (202) 225-5431

You can also take action by tweeting at these members of House leadership, using the following tweets:

    Dear President Obama;

    It is imperative for you to sign and pass this bill to provide equal justice within the Criminal Justice System. The Innocence Progject has worked very hard to have men and women exonerated, and released from prisons in which they were unjustly convicted. Many have spent countless years behind bars while they were innocent and wrongfully convicted. At this time we implore that you support the” Justice For All Reauthorization Act,”. The U.S.Senate did pass said Act. How come cops are lying on the stand?. Prosecutors making up their own version. The Innocence Project is finally “outing” the corruption of Police, Judges, Prosecutors . Its time we started making those who are responsible for this corruption “pay” for their crimes against innocent people

    We count on your executive discretion for all accused unjustly to be released back into the community and avoid any other wrongful convictions to occur within our courts and the Criminal Justice System as a whole. #PassSenateJFAANOW !

    Thank you Mr. President,

    Respectfully

    Maria C. Gonzalez
