Default Natl Call In Day April 23rd

Help flood Congress with calls! Call your federal lawmakers today and tell them that it is time to end the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine.

Your calls will make an important difference.

The National Call-In Day is part of "Crack the Disparity" National Month of Advocacy, a month-long coordinated push to eliminate the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine.

The current law:

* overstates the relative danger of crack cocaine to powder cocaine;
* contributes to the growth of our prison population, increasing the financial burden on taxpayers;
* disproportionately affects African Americans; and
* uses limited federal resources on low-level street dealers rather than on the major drug traffickers.

Twenty-three years of a failed policy is long enough! It's time to end this unjust and disproportionate sentencing policy. Follow this link or visit http://capwiz.com/famm/callalert/index.tt?alertid=13191701 to get talking points and contact information for your federal senators and representative.

If you experience any problems using FAMM's Action Center to look up the names of your federal lawmakers, please call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard three times at (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak to your representative and two senators.

Thank you --


Jennifer Seltzer Stitt
Federal Legislative Affairs Director
