FAMM’s First Annual May Challenge Is About To Begin May 7, 2009

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

We need to raise $100,000 over the next 31 days and if we do… we will get an extra $50,000 from a remarkable FAMM supporter!

This exciting opportunity comes on the heels of several key sentencing reform successes, including yesterday’s historic news from the Department of Justice to support equal sentences for crack and powder cocaine!  Last week in New York, the nation’s oldest mandatory minimum sentences were repealed.  And Massachusetts, Ohio, Nebraska, Michigan, and New Jersey are just a few of the states tackling sentencing reforms now.

We’ve waited decades for this kind of momentum and now we want to capitalize on it as much as possible.  That’s why we’re aiming higher than ever before.  I’ve challenged the FAMM team and our FAMM members to raise $100,000 over the next 31 days.  It won’t be easy, but nothing worth doing ever is.

FAMM needs your help to meet this challenge and take advantage of this momentum!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate to FAMM online or send us a check!
  • Tell your friends to donate to FAMM. The prison and state with the most donors will get special recognition in the next FAMMGram .
  • Ask your place of worship to take up a collection for FAMM!
  • Ask your employer to match your donation to FAMM!
  • Become a "matcher" and match the gift of others!
  • Host a movie party at your house! Invite your friends to watch the film Perversion of Justice , collect donations, and send them back to us. (Call FAMM at 202-822-6700 to request a free copy of the film.)

This is a team effort so please get everyone you know involved. We can’t do this without you.

So, what do you say: are you up for a challenge? Because FAMM’s first ever May Challenge begins….now !
