Having a surgery of 4 procedures and not having him there to hold my hand has been hard. Recuperating alone is even harder. Yet @GovKathyHochul has not even mentioned Clemency! Apps are not just going to go away! They must be reviewed!

"From the broken heart of a mother whose son died in solitary confinement," Tamara Carter says her son Brandon Rodriguez would still be alive if the City Council had acted sooner to end solitary confinement. She urges a vote now to end this deadly torture. nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-o…

Legislation to end solitary confinement now has 34 official sponsors! With veto-proof supermajority support, we look forward to @NYCSpeakerCoJo - who has long advocated for an end to solitary - to call a vote. Time for NYC to finally end this torture. amny.com/news/exclusive-advo…

ATTN: We’re holding a sit-in at @NYCSpeakerCoJo’s office to demand he bring legislation to end solitary confinement to the floor for a vote. With skyrocketing deaths in Rikers, and massive support for the bill in the Council, it’s up to Speaker Johnson to end this torture.

Thank you @ChelseaClinton. The people in this film languished in prison for decades because of blanket parole denials that disregarded their transformations behind bars. @GovKathyHochul & legislative leaders @AndreaSCousins & @CarlHeastie must act. #ClemencyNOW #ParoleJusticeNY
A powerful film exposing the NY Parole Board’s role in mass incarceration has premiered at the @NewYorker. The testimonies in the film should move NY lawmakers to pass the Elder Parole and Fair & Timely Parole bills, and @GovKathyHochul to expand clemency. newyorker.com/culture/the-ne…

Today we delivered hundreds of postcards to @SRachelMay in support of Elder Parole. The State Board of Parole needs to provide evaluations for parole release to incarcerated elders who have already served 15 or more years - and to bring our loved ones home. #ParoleJusticeNY
