It’s matching grant time at FAMM – time to make your contribution go twice as far!
When I launched FAMM twenty-five years ago, I never would have imagined that a generous supporter would match every dollar raised at the end of the year! Back then I had nothing more than a cardboard box full of letters from prisoners, and a passionate belief that what I was doing was right. I didn’t know if it would work. I didn’t know how long it would take. And I sure didn’t know how many people would join me in this fight.
Thanks to you, FAMM has been able to reframe the sentencing discussion and make it a mainstream issue. Politicians of all stripes now admit that America’s sentencing laws are extreme and need to be changed.
And in some ways, we’re just getting started! In January, I will be handing over the reins to FAMM’s incoming president, Kevin Ring, while I remain chairman of the board. Kevin is already laying the groundwork to launch new attacks against wasteful and irrational sentencing laws and policies at the state and federal level. I’m excited about where FAMM is heading, and with your help I know we’ll get there!
Please donate to FAMM today to build our war chest for the year ahead. From now until the end of the year, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by a wonderful FAMM supporter!
There are more lives to change. Let’s keep doing it!
