FAMM announces Roxana Rincones to serve as interim President
Rincones has worked at FAMM as FAMM’s Vice President of Family Outreach, Engagement & Mobilization
WASHINGTON – FAMM Board Chair Julie Stewart announced today that Roxana Rincones, FAMM’s Vice President of Family Outreach, Engagement & Mobilization, will serve as interim President.
“Roxana has been a vital part of FAMM for 16 years, and is a great choice to guide the organization,” Stewart said. “She brings a wealth of institutional knowledge and is well-versed in every aspect of FAMM’s operations. Additionally, Roxana provides continuity as the search for a new President is conducted.”
Rincones joined FAMM in 2007 as Director of Finance and Administration, and was promoted to vice president in 2018.
“Not a day goes by that I don’t think about people in prison and their loved ones,” Rincones said. “I am committed to this work, and I am grateful to be entrusted to steer the ship for the time being.
“Kevin’s shoes, of course, are going to be very hard to fill, but I’m excited and ready for the challenge. The FAMM staff is incredible – and our energy and dedication to reform will not waver.”
Kevin Ring, who served as President of FAMM for over six years, joined Arnold Ventures in July.
For more than three decades, FAMM has united the voices of affected families, the formerly incarcerated, and a range of stakeholders and advocates to fight for a more fair and effective justice system. FAMM has led the fight to reform extreme mandatory sentencing laws and to promote rehabilitation and dignity for all people in prison, 94 percent of whom will return to our neighborhoods one day.
FAMM is a national nonpartisan advocacy organization that promotes fair and effective criminal justice policies that safely reduce incarceration, save taxpayer dollars, and keep families together. Founded in 1991, FAMM has secured bold sentencing and prison reform across the country while elevating the voices of directly impacted individuals and families.
