How do you craft a major justice reform bill that will appeal to both progressives and conservatives—as well as to faith-based and secular organizations? According to Prison Fellowship Vice-President of Government Affairs Heather Rice-Minus, you appeal to their core principles.

Today on the BreakPoint Podcast, Heather Rice-Minus explains to the Colson Center’s Warren Smith how the First Step Act—a milestone criminal justice reform bill—garnered such overwhelming bipartisan support.

She also discusses why she, a criminal justice reform advocate by profession, is also involved in the pro-life movement. Again, the answer is core principles.
