Holly Harris, Executive Director of Justice Action Network, released the following statement after the announcement of the departure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions:  

“Today’s news offers an opportunity to chart a different course for our country’s broken justice system. And that path should begin with the passage of bipartisan prison and sentencing reforms. In the coming days, the United States Senate will determine the fate of a groundbreaking federal criminal justice reform bill, and our hope is that new leadership at the Department of Justice will work with the broad coalition of conservative and progressive voices in the reform community to take this first step toward a justice system that is smarter, fairer, and will ultimately lead to a safer America.”
