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.
