Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM)


Mission is to create a more fair and effective justice system that respects our American values of individual accountability and dignity while keeping our communities safe.

FAMMís greatest asset has always been the stories of its members. By sharing the impact of unjust sentencing and prison policies on incarcerated individuals, their families, and their communities, FAMM has helped create urgency around the issue and made the problem feel real to the policymakers who have to be moved to make meaningful change. This two-pronged approach ó public education and targeted advocacy ó is core to FAMMís success to date and will remain critical to its work as the organization expands its organizing efforts nationally.
