General Career Pathways Programming

CORD and the National Career Pathways Network have developed books, resource publications, and newsletters to foster leadership in career pathways and disseminate promising practices to serving a diverse population of learners. http://www.cord.org and http://www.ncpn.info/index.php.

Sentencing

FAMM (Families Against Mandatory Sentences). FAMM is the most effective sentencing reform advocacy group in the United States. Since 1991, FAMM has worked to eliminate mandatory sentencing laws and promote sentencing policies rooted in the fundamental American values of individualized justice, fairness, proportionality, and respect for liberty and due process. By sharing stories of families and prisoners, we highlight the human costs of mandatory sentencing laws, and advocate for more efficient and effective protection of public safety. www.famm.org.
