Smart Sentencing Coalition

Empower Missouri has a long history of fighting for criminal justice reform. Most recently in 2018, Empower Missouri was an instrumental partner in the effort to Raise the Age: keeping 17 year old juvenile offenders out of our adult correctional institutions.

To continue our reform efforts, Empower Missouri spearheaded the creation of the Smart Sentencing Coalition (SSC), which is comprised of organizations and individuals all working towards a Missouri that is smart on crime instead of tough on crime.

The SSC meets by phone on the third Friday of every month at 11am. It is staffed by Christine Woody.
