Advocacy & Awareness

Webb Hubbell believes in the power of experience. Guided by the defining moments of his own life, Webb dedicates a significant portion of his time advocating for causes he believes in and creating widespread awareness of today’s critical social and political issues.

 

Sentencing Policy and Reform

Webb promotes reform within the U.S. criminal justice system for sentencing policy, racial disparity, incarceration alternatives, collateral consequences of a criminal conviction, and other crime and punishment issues. The Sentencing Project is a resource for information and a place to contribute to this important work.

Organ Donation

Himself the recipient of an organ transplant, Webb Hubbell is a strong advocate for organ donation.

According to http://www.organdonor.gov, organ donors made more than 28,000 transplants possible in 2013. Another 1 million people received cornea and other tissue transplants that helped them recover from trauma, bone damage, spinal injuries, burns, hearing impairment, and vision loss.

Still, thousands die every year waiting for donor organs. Register today to become an organ and tissue donor in your state.

Marijuana Legalization Movement

A movement is sweeping the country to eliminate the prohibition against marijuana use by adults and for medical treatment. Webb continues to explore the pros and cons of such a movement including the conflict between local and federal law, the restrictions on medical research imposed by the government, and the hurdles faced by lawyers, accountants, bankers, and others who wish to do business in this exploding environment.
