Actions you can take

Current legislative actions

  • Tell your state rep: Vote for criminal justice reforms!

The Alabama Legislature’s first special session of 2021 just began, and things are already moving quickly. The House Judiciary Committee has already voted in favor of two bills to make desperately needed improvements to the state’s criminal justice system, and those bills now move to the full House for a vote.

Your representative needs to hear from you that Alabama cannot build its way out of the state’s current unconstitutional prison conditions. The House will consider both these bills Wednesday, Sept. 29.

Click here to email your representative TODAY and ask them to vote YES on Rep. Jim Hill’s reform bills on the House floor on Wednesday.

  • Use your voice! Tell your leaders to expand Medicaid!

Gov. Kay Ivey and lawmakers from both parties have agreed to discuss Medicaid expansion, so we must show overwhelming support. Below, you will be able to send an email to Gov. Ivey as well as use our calling service that can put you in direct contact with the governor's office. When connected, tell them your name and where you live and that you’d like to see Medicaid expanded in Alabama!
