On May 12, Mary Danhauer and Joetta Venneman were joined by Jarret Smith of NETWORK to talk with Elaina Murphy from Congressman Brett Guthrie’s office on the EQUAL Act. This bipartisan legislation is part of NETWORK’s Build Anew agenda. It seeks to eliminate the disparity in sentencing for cocaine offenses, a major contributor to mass incarceration and thus a difficult road post-incarceration. As Catholics we believe in treating each person with human dignity and ensuring that our criminal legal system is fair and accountable. Additionally, each person is capable of rehabilitation, reconciliation and restoration.
