Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM) works to put a human face on mandatory sentencing laws through our "Faces of FAMM," which tell the stories of people serving mandatory sentences. FAMM compiles these stories by communicating with federal and state prisoners and their family members.
Sign up for the mailing list. We encourage everyone to sign up for FAMM’s mailing list. In addition to updates, exciting news, and other information, FAMM uses the mailing list to search for stories. As case needs arise, FAMM will send out an email appeal for relevant stories. If you are on our mailing list, you will be able to respond if and when a need arises. Sign up for the mailing list.
Have your loved one add us on CorrLinks. FAMM is able to correspond with federal prisoners through CorrLinks, an email system used in federal prisons. We send emails through CorrLinks when we are looking for specific cases and stories. If you have a loved one in federal prison, please encourage them to add “email@example.com” on CorrLinks. That way they will receive information and updates from FAMM, and can send us information about their story if and when we are looking for a specific kind of case. Because of the high volume of responses, FAMM will only be able to follow up when we think we might be able to use someone’s story.
Thank you, your stories matter! We value your stories and appreciate your willingness to share them with us. FAMM uses stories in our education and advocacy work in order to show lawmakers and the general public the human face of unjust sentencing laws.
Please note: FAMM cannot provide legal help and sharing your story does not mean you will receive media attention. Thank you for sharing your story and for supporting FAMM in the effort for sentences that fit and justice that works!
