FAMM To Testify About The Failure Of Mandatory Minimums May 26, 2010

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

Julie Stewart, President and founder of FAMM, gives us this update:

Tomorrow at 4:15 p.m. EST, I will be testifying before the United States Sentencing Commission about the failure of mandatory minimums. Rather than make you wait for my report on the hearing, I invite you to join me by following FAMM on Twitter!  http://twitter.com/FAMMFoundation

At the hearing, Mary Price, FAMM’s vice president, will be tweeting live, as 17 experts provide testimony to help advise the Sentencing Commission as it writes its first report on federal mandatory minimum sentencing laws since 1991.

In my testimony, I will do what FAMM does best: tell the Commission the stories of FAMM members – stories about how mandatory minimum sentences are harming real people and real families – and call on the Commission to once again reject mandatory minimums.

Tomorrow’s  hearing will run from 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  The panel I’m on is scheduled to begin at 4:15 p.m.  Click here for the full agenda.

Please visit FAMM’s Twitter page, http://twitter.com/FAMMFoundation, follow along, and post your comments as I tell the Commission to tell Congress the truth: mandatory minimums are unjust and un-American!
