NGOs Urge Congress and the President to End the Lock Up Quota

Earlier this week, CIVIC along with 131 undersigned non-governmental civil rights, civil liberties, human rights, legal services, and faith-based organizations, sent letters to the President urging him to reject the principle of a bed quota in his forthcoming FY 2015 budget request and urging members of the Congressional Appropriations Committees not to include bed quota language in their FY 2015 appropriations bills later this year. You can find links to the letters here and here.
