FAMM is mostly focused on drug sentencing but looks at other mandatory sentencing as well. They are well organized on a national and state level. Check out their website.

Also, The Sentencing Project does a lot of the leading nuts and bolts studies and research on the topic. They have a good website, too. Marc Mauer, ass't director, has authored a couple of books on the subject. He is often quoted in articles about mandatory minimums. His two books are "Race to Incarcerate" and "Invisible Punishment" [co-editor].
Hope this helps.
