Our Mission

The mission of the Sentence Review Project is to identify individuals serving an excessive sentence and/or those whose confinement is no longer in the interest of justice.  We work with prosecutors, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, system-impacted people and community based organizations to identify and facilitate the release of people serving excessive and overly-punitive sentences.  The Sentence Review Project takes an approach that balances the goals of public safety and the fair administration of justice.   We are an inclusive endeavor and welcome partnerships from individuals, organizations and affiliations that share our vision to advance the release of men and women who have been rehabilitated and deserve to return home.
