Drug Law Reform
These are only a handful of the worthy and wonderful organizations fighting the good fight, very worthy of a donation or volunteering of your time.
FAMM (Families Against Mandatory Minimums) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization fighting for smart sentencing laws that protect public safety. We see a country where criminal sentencing is individualized, humane, and sufficient to impose fair punishment and protect public safety. By advocating for sensible state and federal sentencing reform, FAMM helps lessen the burden of overcrowded prisons on taxpayers, shift resources from excessive incarceration to law enforcement and other programs proven to reduce crime and recidivism, and mobilize those whose lives are harmed by unfair prison sentences to work constructively for change.
The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the nation's leading organization promoting drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights. Our supporters are individuals who believe the war on drugs is doing more harm than good. Together we advance policies that reduce the harms of both drug use and drug prohibition, and seek solutions that promote safety while upholding the sovereignty of individuals over their own minds and bodies. We work to ensure that our nation’s drug policies no longer arrest, incarcerate, disenfranchise and otherwise harm millions – particularly young people and people of color who are disproportionately affected by the war on drugs.
