2. Donate to charities such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that work to defend those dealing with America's difficult sentencing policy, and sign their petitions so their sentence reform proposals will make it to our government officials.
3. Support businesses that employ those with criminal records and help them get people back on their feet.
4. If you're especially dedicated to the cause, call and write your senators or representative and urge them to push for reforms of the prison system and sentencing policies.
