NACDL/FAMM State Clemency Project

Federal Compassionate Release Clearinghouse

FAMM, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and other advocates are currently recruiting attorneys to work on compassionate release motions for vulnerable incarcerated individuals.  Our project also seeks compassionate release for individuals whose excessive sentences would be lower today due to intervening changes in the law. 


Please join us in this historic effort to protect them.
