The National Post-Conviction Project stands in support of the recently passed bi partisan First Step Act, which provides federal prisoners with better opportunities for rehabilitation, offers judges more flexibility in sentencing, increases good time credits and more. NPCP is actively involved in pursuing legislation at the state level which will adopt the spirit of the First Step Act so that all incarcerated persons have access to these beneficial changes in the law. NPCP is also is dedicated to increasing inmates access to the courts and we also seek to reform draconian sentencing laws such as Three Strikes, drug laws and more.
NPCP offers specialized programs specifically designed to assist our incarcerated veterans and women in prison. As of January 2016, there were over 181,500 veterans in prison/jail in the United States. As of October 2017, there were over 219,000 women incarcerated. The National Post-Conviction Project seeks to reduce these numbers significantly and develop alternatives to incarceration.
