The conservative approach to criminal justice:
fighting crime, supporting victims, and protecting taxpayers.

Right on Crime cited in Washington Monthly

| March 18, 2013

In this piece, the Right on Crime campaign was cited as a leading source for conservative ideas on criminal justice reform.

The Texas Public Policy Foundation and the Cato Institute have both floated the idea of providing indigent defendants with vouchers that let them pick their own lawyers. TPPF also argues that decriminalizing select offenses and promoting victim-offender mediation, among other measures, can reduce the need for lawyers.

The Right on Crime campaign continues to build momentum, and media coverage like this helps spread the word about our efforts to fight crime, save money and prioritize victims.


RIGHT ON CRIME is a national campaign to promote successful, conservative solutions on American criminal justice policy—reforming the system to ensure public safety, shrink government, and save taxpayers money. By sharing research and policy ideas and mobilizing strong conservative voices, we work to raise awareness of the growing support for effective reforms within the conservative movement. We are transforming the debate on criminal justice in America.
