Release Aging People in Prison

RAPP (RAPPCampaign.com) promotes the release of people in New York State prisons who are over age 50, have served considerable time, and pose no threat to public safety. We urge the governor and other policy-makers to use existing mechanisms—parole, compassionate release, and clemency— to release these elders, and to pass the S.A.F.E. Parole Act to increase parole release rates for everyone.

Come to our monthly meeting in NYC: WEDNESDAY, July 6, 2016 • 6:00-8:15 pm •  6 to 8 pm (with pizza and soda)
