Raising Funds To Fight For Sentences That Fit and Justice That Works May 24, 2009

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

What a great start to FAMM’s first annual May Challenge to raise $100,000!

In just one week we’ve received donations totaling almost $10,000 and dozens of letters of encouragement and offers of help from across the country. We are well on our way to meeting our goal of $100,000!

That goal is important in itself – so we can continue to fight for sentences that fit and justice that works!  But it is especially critical that we raise $100,000 in May because it will trigger an additional $50,000 donation from one of our remarkable supporters!  If you have not yet made a contribution to FAMM, please do so today by clicking here !

We’re already off to a great start this year, but there is so much more work to be done. We need to build on last week’s historic Justice Department announcement supporting equal treatment for crack and powder cocaine sentences.  Congress must turn that recommendation, and further sentencing reforms, into the law of the land.  And we need to help our allies in state governments across the country, from Nevada to New Jersey, pass new laws that do away with one-size-fits-all sentencing.

Most of all, we need to continue to preserve precious hope for those with families who fear that one mistake will separate them for decades.

All of these things need to happen and they need to happen quickly. And your support can make them a reality.

Thanks in advance for helping FAMM fight for sentences that fit and justice that works!
