FAMM ( A Great org. needs your help) Stop Deters and people like him


On Wednesday, Mary Price, vice president of FAMM, called for the elimination of mandatory minimums. I'm sure you're thinking, "That's nothing new. It's what she does every day." But Wednesday was different: Mary's message was carried by the Wall Street Journal to millions across the country. Click here to read the article.

Join her. Raise your voice. Make change happen.

Take a minute to write your federal senators in support of S. 1789, the Senate bill to equalize crack and powder cocaine mandatory minimums. Even if your loved one is serving time under another mandatory sentencing law, your support of this bill is crucial to changing all rigid sentences.

Spending just two minutes (one for each senator) on FAMM's action center is all it takes to make a difference. It will give you your senators' names, email addresses and a sample message. All you have to do is click "send." It is that easy! Click here to write your senators.

Mary was able to take the message outside of Washington. That is important, but not as important as what you can do with your voice as a constituent. Write your senators and make change happen.

Sincerely yours,


Jennifer Seltzer Stitt
Federal Legislative Affairs Director

Sentences that fit. Justice that works.
