Crack Retroactivity Vote Scheduled For June 30 June 14, 2011

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

The U.S. Sentencing Commission will hold its public vote on whether and how to make the lowered crack cocaine sentencing guidelines retroactive on June 30, 2011 at the Commission’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.


FAMM members are welcome to attend this historic event. We do not know what time the vote will take place but will get the information out to you as soon as we know.


This is a great opportunity to demonstrate to the Commission that you care and to meet with your congressional representatives and let them know you support sentencing reform. FAMM can help set appointments with your lawmakers and prepare you for your meetings.


If you plan to come to D.C., let us know by emailing intern1@famm.org.


If you cannot be here for the vote, don’t despair! We will tweet the event on the FAMM Foundation Twitter feed, post a summary on Facebook and of course provide full reports on our blog, SentenceSpeak, and our website, www.famm.org.
