Tens of thousands of people are in federal prison -- sometimes for life -- for low-level nonviolent drug offenses. But with your help, we can roll back the disastrous mandatory minimum sentencing policies that put so many people behind bars. Tell your Senators to support reform of mandatory minimum drug laws now!
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Drug Policy Alliance.
Reform Mandatory Minimum Sentencing Laws
Dear U.S. Senator,
I urge you to support bipartisan sentencing reform. The U.S. has less than 5% of the world's population but almost 25% of the world's prisoners. About half of all people in federal prison are there for a drug offense, and in most cases it's the type of low-level, nonviolent drug offense that would be better handled at the local or state level.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
