103 years. One of many serving a death sentence. This ain’t right. It’s awful. We need Elder Parole for Monique’s husband and so many others.

RONI MINTER

Incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women continue to be undervalued & underserved. a Forgotten Population. If you have a Broken community you will find there are Broken women. Stop putting skirts on male programs and calling them female programs. The Freedom Unshackled Coalition strongly supports the Elder and Fair and Timely Parole Bills. We also support Clemency Four times a year. #FreeKimBrown
Ashley Principe
54:56
totally unjust

Y’Allidarity from Dallas, Texas (I moved here after living in Buffalo, NY to be with my daughter.) The death penalty needs to be abolished here, but, as previous speakers have said, life without parole is essentially a death sentence. #AbolishTheDeathPenalty both federally and in the states that still have it. #EndDeathByIncarceration #RAPP
Katie Schaffer

Dani Sabi
01:09:55
Change comes when one is not afraid to take a stand. The fact that there is inhumane treatment for people on Parole and Post-Released supervision and even if our scholars and people in our community are crying out for change and it hasn't happened is very disheartening. We have to work together to make this change a reality and then we can finally make Parolees human. Thank you for taking action.#ParoleesAreHuman
