Today, the FAMM office is a joyous place — President Obama has granted commutations (sentence reductions) to eight people, including FAMM members Stephanie George, Reynolds Wintersmith, Clarence Aaron and Ezell Gilbert. Clarence, Stephanie and Reynolds were all serving life without parole sentences for drug offenses and have spent decades behind bars.
There’s a lot of work to do, but we’re taking a moment to celebrate the fact that these men and women won’t die in prison for their nonviolent crimes.
