Model Legislation

A group of stakeholders comprising advocates, policy leaders, law enforcement, state department of corrections, formerly incarcerated women, and children of incarcerated parents came together to develop the first-ever five-components-for-future-legislation document that underlies effective and expansive program development of a parent-sentencing alternative. We appreciate the authors of this document and The Center plans to expand and add to the components for legislation and add a model legislation-template for stakeholders to use for draft legislation in other states.
