Urgent Health Call-In Campaign
for Political Prisoner Ed Poindexter

Watch the moving video of Ed's Niece and Sister at the April 26, 2023
UN EMLER Hearing in Atlanta:

Ed needs to be released to live the rest of his life outside of prison, with his family! (His niece Ericka is now 52 years old and was an infant when Ed was targeted, stolen from his home, jailed, framed, and railroaded.)

Ed Poindexter's left leg was amputated below the knee in early April due to lack of proper medical care. Ed has diabetes and receives dialysis several days a week. He underwent triple bypass heart surgery in 2016.

Please support Ed by sending him a letter of encouragement to:

Ed Poindexter #27767
Reception and Treatment Center
P.O. Box 22800
Lincoln, NE 68542-2800

Ed has a cataract in one eye that makes it difficult for him to read, so please type your letter in 18 point or larger font. The Nebraska Department of Corrections does not plan to allow Ed to have surgery for the cataract because "he has one good eye."



Warden Boyd of the Reception and Treatment Center (402-471-2861);

Warden Wilhelm of the Nebraska State Penitentiary (402-471-3161);

Governor Pillen, the State of Nebraska Office of the Governor (402-471-2244);

Director Rob Jeffreys, Nebraska Department of Corrections 402-471-2654;

The Nebraska Board of Pardons (Email:

Please sustain calls daily through May 30th, 2023 for this intensive campaign, and thereafter as you can.

[Any relief for Ed will be announced via email and social media].

Sample Message:

“I'm calling to urge that Ed Poindexter, #27767, be given immediate compassionate release.

In April 2023, Ed's niece and brother found out that Ed’s leg had been amputated earlier in the month. And it happened without notice to Ed’s family! This was all within the ‘skilled nursing facility’ at the Reception and Treatment Center, which specializes in behavioral issues and suicide watch, and is not primarily a rehab medical unit.

Ed is on dialysis several days per week and is wheelchair bound, and is not able to shower or change without a lot more direct support than he is currently getting.

The Nebraska Department of Corrections admits that their facilities are severely overcrowded and understaffed.

I join Ed’s family in demanding that Ed be given Compassionate Release, and that he be immediately released to hospice at home.”
