FAMM STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO THE RESIGNATION OF
U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS

WASHINGTON – In response to today’s announcement of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ resignation, FAMM President Kevin Ring released the following statement:

Good riddance.

For nearly 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’s focus on ending a one-size-fits-all punishment structure has led to reforms to sentencing and prison policies in six states and is paving the way to programs that support rehabilitation for the 94 percent of all prisoners who will return to our neighborhoods one day.

Founded in 1991, FAMM is helping transform America’s criminal justice system by uniting the voices of impacted families and individuals and elevating the issues all across the country.
