We are a group of parents working hard on making a difference for all kids and all parents in Minnesota. Parents meet once a month, to stay proactive on our plans and goals for FFCAK. We know that with time, dedication, networking, persistence, and love, we will achieve our goals.
First Mission; Seek lawmakers to implement Cameron Norris Law as a Child Murder law in Minnesota. This mission began in April 2013 and continues to seek out support.
Second Mission; Building a non-profit called "Cameron Norris Foundation" to pursue our dreams, of serving families with children with many services, as well as provide an emergency housing lifeline for animals too!
Cynthia Sweats is a survivor and parent of a murdered child. Cameron Norris.
Cynthia is the President of FFCAK. She is in college and ready to graduate in 2018 with her Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice. She plans to continue her education to obtain her Bachelor's Degree.
Cynthia has been pursuing to change the law on child murder since April 2013 and hopes to have Cameron Norris Law passed soon.
The next mission for Fighting for Cameron and kids is building a Non-Profit organization, to help support families with children.
Cameron was born into the arms of Cynthia Sweats in 1999. He was the light of her life and adored by many.
Was a close friend of the family for over 9 years. Jones, was the uncle of Cynthia's best friend. He was trusted to watch Cameron so Cynthia could go to work. There is still no understanding of why this happened, but Jones brutally beat Cameron to death. This tragically changed Cynthia's life forever.
Jones was sentenced to 20 years in prison, and only served 14 years. He was released March 8, 2017.
This is the reason and many other cases, why we need a Child Murder Law.
OUR RESOLUTION TO CHILD HOMICIDE
Be it resolved...that the DFL make it a Legislative Priority to pass Cameron Norris Law, allowing to put into place guidelines for sentencing of adults that commit child homicides. Offenders will be charged with 1st degree homicide, when arrested and booked into jail. The offender is given the choice to go to trial or take the "Intentional Second-Degree Murder" plea deal. The plea deal will be an intense and extensive rehabilitative program that can provide parole to the offender after 40 years, only if all requirements and terms of the plea deal are met.
Your generous gift will help us further our mission to change the law. It will also help us in our mission to support those in need. Together, we can make a difference.
