President Donald Trump and A.G. Jeff Sessions have made it clear they have little interest in reforming the federal criminal justice system to make it more merciful or equitable. But they're not the last word. Individual states offer many opportunities to scale back the harsh laws and punitive sentencing systems that help feed America’s massive incarceration rate. This panel will teach you how to help push valuable reforms in your home states.
