We'll meet with NYS elected officials, march and rally in support of our parole justice demands: 1. A fully staffed Parole Board with Parole Commissioners who have professional backgrounds in rehabilitation; 2. Elder parole, which allows all incarcerated older people, aged 55 plus an opportunity for parole release after serving 15 consecutive years in prison; 3. A parole process that centers change and transformation instead of punishment and re-sentencing.
Free transportation will be provided from NYC and made available in other regions of the state as needed. Food will be provided.
