 ***If your loved one is in the federal system, PLEASE pass this along to him and ask him to share it with anyone he knows with a 924c. If he's in the feds, most likely he knows someone (or quite possibly a few guys) with those charges. This info can help save their lives.

On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner publicly expressed his support for the SAFE Act. This is a HUGE win for all of us! Although the bill is sitting in the House Judiciary Committee it now seems likely to have enough support to make it out of the House. However, there is still much work that needs to be done before it can reach the President's desk. Once it clears the House it still must travel through the Senate where some challenges may await. In the meantime we need to build as much public and political support for this bill as possible. Representative Bobby Scott, co-author of the SAFE Act, has asked us for our help.

If you (or someone you know) were convicted of a "Non-Violent Drug Crime" and received a consecutive mandatory minimum sentence for the "use of a firearm" under Title 18 USC 924(c) but the firearm was NOT in your possession (on your person) at the time of your arrest, we need to hear from you.

Also, if you (or someone you know) were convicted of a "Non-Violent Drug Crime" and received a consecutive mandatory minimum sentence for "AIDING AND ABETTING THE USE OF A FIREARM" (that you did not actually possess yourself) under Title 18 USC 924(c) we need to hear from you as well. 

If either situation occurred in your case we need to hear from you. Representative Scott's Office has asked us to collect the following information:

Please send your:
Name and Number
Federal District Court Case Number
Hometown and State

To:
Strong Prison Wives
PO Box 85
Gillette, NJ 07933
email: SPWFinfotainmentNetwork@gmail.com

Please don't be discouraged or disheartened if you have a crime of violence as this bill will apply to us as well. Right now, the way for us to build our support base is by highlighting those cases that show the greatest injustice with the least amount of political liability. Scott's office is committed to our cause and to the passage of this bill. Things are looking better and better every day! Take some time to smile and enjoy the good news! And then keep smiling as we get back to work building more support. We'll make it a real celebration once we're all home. #924c   #prisoners   #criminaljusticereform   #stopmassincarceration  #SAFEAct
