Kansans for Smart Justice Lobby Day

February 14, 2019 @ 9:30 am 2:00 pm
The Kansans for Smart Justice Coalition will head to the Kansas State Capitol to advocate for Smart Justice reform on Valentine’s Day. We are inviting citizens from across the state of Kansas to join us in Topeka for a day of action, change, advocacy, and fun. We’ll be asking our legislators to "have a heart" and end mass incarceration.
 
The Kansans for Smart Justice Lobby Day goal is to effectively influence legislation regarding criminal justice reform policies relating to civil asset forfeiture, defelonizing all classes of drug crimes, and standardizing diversion practices throughout the state.
