Amplify Values In These Emerging Issues

Speak Up for Criminal Justice Reform

This Friday is the 25th anniversary of President Clinton signing the Crime Bill. As a result, criminal justice will likely be a topic discussed at the Democratic Presidential debate on Thursday and in the media. The legislation is now blamed for the explosion of mass incarceration in the United States. Recent activism wants to end money bail as one move towards a more rehabilitative approach. Discuss this anniversary by citing the values of Redemption and Voice. 

Defend Refugee Resettlement to the U.S.


The Trump administration is considering “zeroing out” the refugee resettlement program which has selected and brought refugee families to the United States for the past 40 years. The proposal is an affront to our nation’s heritage of welcoming people with a well-founded fear of persecution. Such a proposal would strand thousands of endangered people across the globe and eliminate hundreds of jobs in resettlement agencies. Join advocates in defending a program that is central to our national identity.
