Time to Come Home: 20 Years is Enough
Crime over the past 25 years has generally declined, yet the number of people serving life sentences has grown exponentially with 200,000 people sentenced to die in prison. Time to Come Home: 20 Years is Enough examines the impact of life sentences on incarcerated people and their families. By citing relevant statistics and exploring the personal stories of individuals deeply impacted by this harsh punishment, we demonstrate the impracticality and immorality of life sentences.
Time to Come Home: 20 Years is Enough is based on the book, The Meaning of Life: The Case for Abolishing Life Sentences by Marc Mauer and Ashley Nellis, and was produced in conjunction with Sentencing Project’s Campaign to End Life Imprisonment.
