Please help the campaigns for Jubilee Justice 2000, Free Kemba Smith and to repeal mandatory minimum sentencing and end the failed and unjust war on drugs. Here's what you can do:

  1. Visit to send a letter to Congress calling for the repeal of mandatory minimum sentencing.
  2. Visit and click on "What You Can Do" to help the campaign for a presidential pardon for Kemba Smith.
  3. Join the Jubilee Justice 2000 petition drive. Visit and click on "download the petition" to get your first copy. Print them out and hand them out, leave them in coffee shops, activist centers, bookstores, etc. Sign a copy, and if you are willing, go out and seek signatures from others.
  4. Volunteer to help the November Coalition input the petition data. E-mail John Chase, volunteer coordinator, at [email protected] to sign up.
  5. Justice list, for alerts and info on this and other campaigns on behalf of drug war prisoners -- visit to subscribe. This is a one-way announcement list, like this DRC-NATL Week Online/Rapid Response Team list, for reformers who want to receive more information on prisons and sentencing and who don't want to wait until Friday to get it. This new list, [email protected], is not formally affiliated with the Jubilee Justice campaign, but will support it and other similar efforts.
