On Jeanne Bishop’s Book “Change of Heart”

rforan8 Clemency

By Rev. Alexander E. Sharp  When writer and move director Nora Ephron offered advice to aspiring authors, she would often say, “Voice, voice, more voice.” What she meant was that good writers must be authentic. They must be honest. They must eliminate the distance between head and heart. In her recently published book, Change of Heart, Jeanne Bishop is so authentic it takes your breath away.

Take Action: Support Clemency for Prisoners of War on Drugs

Rev. Katherine B. Ray Clemency, Take Action

When President Obama granted clemency to 46 prisoners in July, it was the largest presidential pardon since the 1960s.  Still, many more Americans remain incarcerated for nonviolent drug crimes.  The Fair Sentencing Act, which reduced drug sentencing disparities, does not help those already incarcerated.  The Drug Policy Alliance is mobilizing supporters to reach out to President Obama to advocate on behalf of these individuals. Contact President Obama today to use his power of clemency to free more prisoners of the Drug War.
