Van Jones is the CEO of REFORM Alliance, which was launched in January, 2019.
The mission of the REFORM Alliance is to dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system – starting with probation and parole. To win, we will leverage our considerable resources to change laws, policies, hearts and minds.
A bipartisan Bill aimed at reforming the Pennsylvania probation and parole system will be introduced by Rep. Jordan Harris (D-Philadelphia) and Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland).
296,000 Pennsylvania residents are currently on parole or probation and at constant risk of re-imprisonment, including REFORM Co-chair, recording artist, and Philadelphia native Meek Mill.
That’s why REFORM introduced a bill to bring much needed reforms to the Pennsylvania probation and parole system. Meek’s story is just one example of why unreasonable supervision policies that drive mass incarceration must be changed. Join us in breaking the cycle!
