A coalition of criminal justice reform, health policy, human rights, and faith-based organizations have launched a new public education and advocacy campaign to urge the creation, expansion, and robust use of federal and state programs with the intent of granting early release to prisoners with compelling circumstances, such as a terminal or age-related illness. "The Campaign for Compassionate Release" comprises a diverse group of organizations, including Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM), American Conservative Union Foundation, Human Rights Watch, National Council of Churches, Law Enforcement Action Partnership, and National Disability Rights Network. Today I'll be joined by Mary Price, General Counsel of Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM) to discuss the topic of Compassionate Release. Plus, don't forget about the Edwards Notebook and the Veteran's Tip of the Day! All of this and more as time allows. Listen live, join the chatroom, be a part of the show.
