Dear President Obama:
In the spirit of justice that motivated the Fair Sentencing Act that you signed on August 3, 2010;
In the spirit of this season of mercy and forgiveness; and
In the spirit of families joyfully reunited during these holidays:
Please order the creation of an effective process to promptly and comprehensively review petitions for commutation of sentence from federal prisoners so that you can properly use your power under Article II, section 2 of the U.S. Constitution.
Mr. President, you have a moral obligation to review appeals of injustice from federal prisoners and to carry out your Constitutional duty to do justice. You know there are thousands of federal prisoners serving unjustly long sentences. They should not be left without hope that you are doing everything in your power to speedily guarantee justice and express appropriate mercy on behalf of the nation.

*  *  *

I will CALL THE White House (202-456-1111) to ask President Obama to direct a comprehensive review of the thousands of clemency petitions awaiting his action, and to use his power to commute the sentences of those serving unjustly long sentences.  (Web form
I will SPREAD THE WORD by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other media about this action to my friends and family.
I will PRAY for prisoners and for the President to see his duty to address this injustice.
I will FAST on December 22, 2010.
