About FAMM

FAMM (Families Against Mandatory Minimums) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization fighting for smart sentencing laws that maintain public safety.

By advocating for sensible state and federal sentencing reform, FAMM helps:

  1. lessen the burden of overcrowded prisons on taxpayers,
  2. shift resources from excessive incarceration to law enforcement and other programs proven to reduce crime and recidivism, and
  3. mobilize those whose lives are adversely affected by unfair sentences to work constructively for change.
