WASHINGTON — Next week, the bipartisan co-chairs of the all-new Millennial Action Project (MAP) Criminal Justice Reform Advisory Council will hold a press conference detailing their nationwide legislative strategy for 2021, following the Council’s first official meeting. The criminal justice system in this country is broken, and Colorado State Representative Leslie Herod (D) and Louisiana State Representative Tanner Magee (R) will address a nationwide audience with their plan to bring young lawmakers together—from both sides of the aisle—to fix it.

This press conference is sponsored by the Millennial Action Project, and both Rep. Herod and Rep. Magee are members of MAP’s State Future Caucus Network.
