On Wednesday, October 5, FAMM members will join other national organizations and thousands of people across the country in a National Call-In Day. People across the country will call Senate leadership – Senators Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) – and ask them to make the criminal justice system more fair, support public safety and reduce costs to taxpayers by passing S. 306, the National Criminal Justice Commission Act.
S. 306 would create a bipartisan commission to review current criminal justice policies and make recommendations for system-wide reform. We believe that any review of the criminal justice system will necessarily include a review (and rejection) of mandatory minimums.
We think that this Commission will help move the ball forward and bring about reform but we need your help to make it happen.
To participate, mark your calendar for October 5. FAMM will send out contact information for Senators Reed and McConnell as well as talking points the morning of October 5. Let’s inundate them with calls!
Thank you —
