Greetings from Free Alabama Movement (FAM). We are reaching out to you, our supporters, to help us further our objective of ending mass incarceration in Alabama. As you know, F.A.M. was established in 2013, from inside the Alabama Department of Corrections by people who are incarcerated. We are determined to get involved and have our voices heard from the inside in the fight for change to Alabama’s prison woes and bring an end to mass incarceration and prison slavery.
We are currently planning activities for our FREEDOM TOUR 2016, where we plan to stage protests at EVERY prison in the State of Alabama to promote our Three-Point Plan of Action for the remainder of 2016, to address the follows factors that are contributing to mass incarceration in Alabama:
1) Excessive overcrowding and the need for an immediate mass release. Alabama’s prison population must be reduced down to design capacity
2) Revisions and fundamental changes to Alabama’s habitual felony offender act
3) Establishing “automatic” or mandatory parole criteria that will remove discretion from the parole board in decisions for qualified individuals
Our goal is to raise Donations to fund our FREEDOM TOUR 2016 and resources to assist while on the journey. If you are interested in giving a financial contribution, there is an PayPal link on the Free Alabama Movement website, our WordPress blog, and our Facebook page. You can mail in a check payable to Mothers and Families, P.O. Box 186, New Market, AL 35761, via GoFundMe or you can donate via PayPal. If you would like to contribute a non-monetary contribution, please call MAF at 256-203-4371.
We know that you value human rights as we do, we know that you will support our fight for the rights of our incarcerated love ones; who are human as well, but who are being deprived of basic civil and human rights. In times that demand action to bring about change, it is all about continuing and even increasing your support for FAM, a movement that continues to demonstrate non-violent and peaceful protest for civil and human rights behind incarcerated walls. Additionally, you can help by joining the Freedom Tour helping to organize and conduct protests at a designated prison. FAM has formed coalitions with outside groups, including Mothers and Families, Inc., which now serves as our main support group and works on the outside organizing families and coordinating demonstrations for F.A.M. at prisons, ADOC offices, and at companies that use prison labor for profit.
If you have any questions regarding FAM, MAF, or the Freedom Tour 2016, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or freealabamamovement@Gmail.com. You can also reach us via telephone at 256-203-4371.
We sincerely thank you in advance for your much needed support.
