New Hour for Women & Children supports Parole Justice is Elder Justice!
We keep hearing from incarcerated elders who are watching closely and hoping with all heart that we pass these bills.
THESE BILLS WILL SEND OUR ELDERS BACK TO THEIR FAMILY AND COMMUNITY TO MENTOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONS, AND STOP THE GENERATIONAL CURSE OF MASS INCARCERATION
Everyone deserves a second look! RELEASE OUR ELDERS https://www.sentencingproject.org/publications/a-second-look-at-injustice/

Thank you AM Kim - you spoke TRUTH!
GIVE MINE TO ME, MY INCARCERATED LOVED ONE HAS A GRANDMOTHER, MOTHER, SIBLINGS CHILDREN, AND GRANDCHILDREN TO COME BACK TO. #FREETHEMALL
who do we tweet at right now?
Thank you Assemblymember Kim, we need to do better for our elders. Elder parole will support older women and men behind bars and will limit death by incarceration.

YES, DR. WILLIAMS, THIS IS TORTURE OF ELDERS AND MURDER
Thank you Dr. Williams
my husband incarcerated 35 years now no parole until he's over 80!!
THAT AIN’T RIGHT
did not kill anyone either.
I'm so sorry Norma
OUR LOVED ONES HAVE BEEN IN PRISON SINCE I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, I AM A SENIOR CITIZEN NOW- THAT’S CRAZY ON SO MANY LEVELS. NORMA, IT SHOULD NOT MATTER IF THE INDIVIDUAL IS REMORSEFUL AND HAS MADE CHANGES IN THEIR LIFE. MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOU NORMA AND OTHERS, SOME WHO HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING. LIVING WHILE BLACK IS A CRIME
WE ARE DEMANDING IT!!!!!!
Yes Hamza! You made his day!
Kathy is incredible...we saw so many elder women die behind bars...this will continue without change and repair of a broken parole system that does not value transformation.
That is true!!! People are turning a blind eye to what's happening to our loved ones.
I DIDN’T EITHER, UNTIL MY DAUGHTER BECAME INCARCERATED AND FACING 15 TO LIFE AND IS NOW 45 Y.O. THANK YOU LILLIAN BARRIOS PAOLI FOR WAKING UP THE MASSES
Thank you much! Dr. Paoli
Thank you Dr. Paoli
Yes, Kathy has been at the heart of RAPP on all fronts. And you responded!
Thank you Ruth Finkelstein for you support
I can't see myself on the screen. LOL
SO MANY LIKE OUR BELOVED KATHY BOUDIN ARE A TESTAMENT TO RELEASING AGING PROPLE IN PRISON. THE CREAM ALWAYS RISES TO THE TOP, BUT THEIR STORIES ARE NOT LIFTED IN THE MEDIA. I SALUTE YOU ALL
Janette we support you!

Love you Janette
take your time
We love you Janette
We are here for you, Jeanette!
We hear you...you are an incredible survivor as a family member. We support you.
THE PAROLE BOARD IS A FAIL AT BEST. THEY ARE UNDERSTAFFED AND STEEPED IN LAW ENFORCEMENT WHO RUBBER STAMP “DENIAL” BASED ON THE ONE THING THAT NEVER CHANGES- THE COMMISSION OF THE CRIME.
We are with you and I appreciate you speaking on behalf of me and my husband as well! I am here with you with the same passion!
We support you, Janette!
We are so glad to have you with us Janette
Thank you Janette, and all the panelists. This has been such a powerful event.
JANETTE YOU ARE A QUEEN, FIX YOUR CROWN AND KEEP SPEAKING YOUR TRUTH<3
You are a great spokeswoman for your husband and everyone inside who needs parole justice. Thank you!
Thank you Janette for your passionate sharing
NYS DEPT OF CORRUPTION IS PREDICATED ON PERPETUAL PUNISHMENT. THEY ARE PUNISHING NOT ONLY THEM BUT US, THE FAMILIES WAITING FOR OUR LOVED ONES
Stay strong. We will fight for you!
Jannette, so much respect for you and your commitment to continue to fight for your husband’s release. Families are the ties that binds the lives of incarcerated people to our communities.
Thank you Janette for your powerful words, we’re so lucky to have you in this fight!
Your voice will push this forward, Janette. Thank you. We need you.
Thank you so much Janette
Thank YOU Janette!!
Janette you are amazing! thank you for your heart and passion
Let the powers that deny this Bill spend a day as an inmate. Maybe they'd care and understand this dark hole
NORMA, THEY WILL GET THEIR DAY AND WISH THAT THEY HAD SUPPORTED. THEY ARE GOING TO PRISON MORE NOW THAN EVER
I'm proud to represent ALL families who are suffering and waiting for their loved ones to come home. I pray everyday and rejoice when I hear someone has been released. All we can do is continue to fight.... It Takes A Village... we will make this happen and bring our men and women home!!!
I believe this bill will pass
JASA & OSBORNE WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVOCACY. ONCE THEY GET OUT THAT HELL HOLE THEY DON’T WANT TO GO BACK. RECIDIVISM ONLY AFFECTS 1% OF ELDERS
Thank you Mr. Cohen
