Criminal justice reform has been at the forefront of many political conversations over the past few years, both nationally and locally.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have released their own vision for the future of the justice system, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) recently unveiled a bold resolution on the matter.
