Statement in Support of Pennsylvania Political Prisoners: Building Upon the Legacies of Political Prisoners to Bring Them Home

1.) Organize and support efforts for compassionate release of Political Prisoners through executive clemency and/or other means available.

2.) Provide letters supporting clemency for political prisoners from criminal justice reform groups and restorative justice advocacy groups.

3.) Obtain letters supporting compassionate release from state representatives and politicians representing our communities.

4.) Advocate for a reconciliation and restorative justice process between Political Prisoners and the victims in the cases for which they were convicted.

5.) Creation of space for political prisoners in the criminal legal reform campaigns, such as the campaigns to end life without parole/death by incarceration, to release aging prisoners, to include violent cases in the equation of criminal justice reform, and to release those human beings who are most vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19. This would include providing space for political prisoner cases to be represented on every movement organization’s agenda, including rallies and other actions.

6.) Establishment of a Pennsylvania chapter of Jericho to help consolidate and assist all campaigns to free the state’s political prisoners.
