Friend, <[link removed]>

#cut50's name came from one ambitious goal: cut our nation's incarcerated population in half. Well, I'm proud to announce that we are well on our way to that goal; This weekend alone, more than 2,200 incarcerated people returned to their families and communities thanks to the First Step Act.

Since the First Step Act was signed into law last December, over 3,500 people have walked out of prison and reentered society. As more and more of our formerly incarcerated neighbors return home, we now have a new task before us: ensuring that our neighbors have the tools, support, and resources they need to find their place in our communities.

For someone coming home after a lengthy period of incarceration, the first few days and weeks can be daunting. But those moments are the critical point in a person’s successful reentry journey. That’s why #cut50 is stepping up to ensure that we welcome our incarcerated neighbors home with the resources and support they need to start their new lives successfully.You can help us make this reentry a success by making a donation today that will be matched by a generous donor dedicated to criminal justice reform. <[link removed]>

Over the past few years, #cut50 has partnered with unlikely allies, advocates, and lawmakers across the political spectrum to pass the First Step Act. Our efforts led to the release of over 3,000 people from federal prison. So now, we're expanding our network of partners to include businesses and organizations ready and willing to offer fair chances to those returning community members.

From free Lyft ride credits for getting to job interviews to hundreds of hours of resume writing support or peer coaching, we are working around the clock to make sure our formerly incarcerated neighbors have the tools they need to successfully reenter society. We've secured more than 1,000 hours of free counseling and therapy sessions, pro bono services from dedicated members of our Empathy Network, and free online educational courses through Coursera.

We even teamed up with Root & Rebound and The Margaret and Daniel Loeb Foundation to create and distribute 10,000 copies of First Step to Second Chances, a printed guide to help individuals navigate their first moments of freedom. From knowing their rights to accessing local services, the guide will serve as a critical point of support for thousands of men and women. And this weekend, it’s being printed and shipped across the country to hundreds of partners. Can you pitch in to help us get this guide into the hands of all 2,200 of our returning community members? <[link removed]>

We know that with the right support, people coming home from prison will live successful lives, staying free of crime and supporting themselves, their families, and their communities.

We’re excited that so many people are returning home to their communities this weekend, but we need your support to make their reentry a success.  <[link removed]>

With your help, we can keep this momentum going strong as more and more formerly incarcerated people reenter society and embark on the next chapter of their lives.

We can't do this work without your continued support. Please contribute today to help us make sure our returning neighbors are #ReentryReady. <[link removed]>

Thank you for everything you do,
Jessica Jackson
National Director, #cut50
