NACDL/FAMM State Clemency Project

Federal CARES Act Home Confinement and COVID-19 Project

FAMM, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, and other advocates, are currently recruiting attorneys to work on compassionate release motions for individuals on CARES Act home confinement who are in danger of being returned to prison once the President ends the  COVID-19 Emergency. Help us keep them home. They are vulnerable to serious illness or death should they contract COVID, which is much more likely in prison. And, they have been living productive lives with loved ones in the community, many for over a year.

Please join us in this historic effort to protect them.
