UUs Seek Passage of HB5

Vote is Tuesday. Contact your legislator today.

As a member of the steering committee of the Unitarian Universalist Delaware Advocacy Network (UUDAN), I’ve written to my state representative to urge passage of HB5, which would reform concurrent and consecutive sentencing by providing sentencing judges with the discretion to sentence prison time concurrently when appropriate.  According to Attorney General Kathy Jennings, HB 5 would make a huge difference in the length of sentences. This bill would very significantly help achieve our goal of reducing mass incarceration in Delaware.

Even if your legistlator is a “sure vote” on this bill, your support gives him or her the courage to pass other needed reforms.
