We need your help to change sentencing disparities among minority defendants. The collateral consequences of convictions has taken its toll on American society. No matter how long the sentence, it becomes a life term for all involved. Help A Just Cause (AJC) bring attention to the disparities in sentencing among minority defendants. Congress needs to hear the pleas of American citizens and know that we will not accept racial bias in the judicial process. In the case of the IRP6, which consists of six software business executives of IRP Solutions, Gary Walker, David Banks, Clint Stewart, Kendrick Barnes, Demetrius Harper and Dave Zirpolo; Kendrick, an African American, was sentenced to seven years imprisonment accused of signing timecards of employees. In a different case, Elaine Martin (Caucasian business owner of MarCon) only received a seven year sentence after being found guilty of 22 counts of mail fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy and filing false tax returns resulting in $3.1 million loss by her victims (company obtained 33 contracts totaling $14.2 million). There is a huge sentencing/racial disparity in these two cases. Please help bring awareness and change to this issue in the United States by signing this petition. Too many minorities and their families are suffering from these extensive sentences and in many cases, innocent men and women have been Wrongfully Incarcerated. Thank you in Advance and We appreciate your support!

Many low-income Wisconsinites might no longer be able to purchase lobster or shrimp, and may be subject to drug testing and forced substance abuse rehabilitation programs, under two bills introduced in the GOP-majority state assembly this month.
For drug or alcohol abusers who get cleaned up, success builds on success.
Those who successfully complete treatment programs do better the longer they manage to stay clean, a study cited by the Georgia Council on Substance Abuse found. About 4 million people went into treatment for drug or alcohol addiction in 2013, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports.
Two-thirds of those who manage to stay sober for one to three years will make it another year. Of those who make it five years, 86 percent make it another year.
