Default Amendment to change U.S. Sentencing Guidelines letter campaign

Amendment to change the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines -during the Commission's 2018 Guideline Amendment cycle.

My boyfriend who's at a FCI wrote to me:

"There is a proposed amendment to the sentencing guidelines that needs your support. Go to


and put your name and address at the bottom. But in addition, we need to find a way to spread this as far and wide as possible. The organization wants 50,000 people attached to it. I have already started directing guys in here on how to get the word out. If we can get enough people to support the guideline change it will be the biggest support ever for a change and they have to hear us. There are some forums that you have come across that you can post the info on and that should only take a few minutes to post it and tell them to send out emails to everyone they know. This amendment will help get their loved ones home earlier. It covers all guideline ranges."

Text from the website of prisology: "The U.S. Sentencing Commission is currently seeking public comment on what its priorities should be for the 2018 Guideline amendment cycle."

If you hear a call and you would like to support this action, - please take a minute to let your voice be heard!

Thank you!

Since this isn't a petition, but a letter writing campaign, I'll move the thread to the Prison Activism forum

I have shared this with several advocacy groups that I belong to. Hoping it will get much needed attention.
