The organization promotes reforms in sentencing law and practice, and alternatives to incarceration. It was founded in 1986 to provide sentencing advocacy training to defense lawyers. It now campaigns on a number of issues, including racial disparity in the justice system, disenfranchisement of felons, and convicts' loss of welfare, education, and housing benefits after minor drug convictions.
