Default We need your help to remove federal crack mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines..

As we all know the federal crack sentencing guidelines are unjust and biased. Currently they are working to modify the sentencing range to a 1 to 1 ratio. We must stand together to help each other. I enclosed the information below. In addition to voting for the change you have to request to be transferred to the senator of your state to also vote.

Soon, the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin discussions on S. 1789, a bill we want to see pass! It is important for the lawmakers listed below to hear from concerned citizens.

To make sure they do, please call the Senate switchboard (202-224-3121) and ask them to connect you to your "assigned" senator (see below). Then, ask the senator to:

(1) vote to eliminate the disparity between crack and powder cocaine, and
(2) reject any amendment that would create new mandatory minimums.

If your last name starts A-C, call
Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) and Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
If your last name starts with D-G, call
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT)
If your last name starts with H-K, call
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
If your last name starts with L-P, call
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)
If your last name starts with Q-R, call
Sen. Herb Kohl (D-WI) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX)
If your last name starts with S, call
Arlen Specter (D-PA) and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ)
If your last name starts with T-U, call
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA)
If your last name starts with V-W, call
Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) and Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD)
If your last name starts with X, Y or Z, call
Sen. Ted Kaufman (D-DE) and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN)We will report back to you when the Judiciary Committee takes a vote on the bill.
