Petitioning Commissioners, U.S. Sentencing Commission

Make the New Crack Cocaine Guideline Retroactive

On April 30, the Sentencing Commission published what it calls an Issue for Comment on whether and how to make the crack guideline reduction apply so that people serving sentences for crack cocaine might benefit with the shorter sentence.

Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM) needs your help to make sure the Commission hears loud and clear that the guideline reductions must be made retroactive!


We know that your voices can make a difference. Five years ago, when the Commission last considered voting to make a change to the crack guideline retroactive, FAMM members unleashed an avalanche of letters and other expressions of support that helped win the day. We can do it again.

The Commission counts signatures on a petition the same as the letters it receives. Please sign this petition today.

If you have already written  the Commission about retroactivity in the past few months, you do not need to write again. They have your letter. Please share this petition with at least ten friends, family and members of your community. Thank you for helping in any way you can.
