But there is another critical ingredient in the public policy success of NACDL and our affiliated organizations. That ingredient is you. NACDL has the right connections in Washington, D.C., but make no mistake that on key issues on both the federal and state level, elected officials want to hear from you, their constituent.
We face key challenges in over-criminalization and over-punishment, indigent defense, national security and civil rights, and other areas.
Individual members of NACDL speaking together can make a difference in educating legislators and the media about issues involving criminal justice. Without the power of our collective voice we will find it more difficult to effect the needed criminal justice reforms.
With the resources provided and described here, NACDL hopes to lead our members in aggressively advocating for a rational and humane criminal justice system.
