Compassionate Release Clearinghouse

A collaborative pro bono effort between FAMM, the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL).

This was made possible by passage of the First Step Act of 2018, which NACDL supported.
