Please Take Action for Russell Maroon Shoatz!

The Free Maroon Now Coalition has been working on a community letter addressed to Judge Kai Scott, who denied Maroon's petition for medical transfer to hospice care despite the fact that he has terminal stage 4 cancer.

We also have a call to the interfaith community, since Maroon is a devout Muslim, asking all faith leaders to join us for a prayerful rally outside the court at the new hearing date. We are also requesting that everyone pray for Maroon, as he is now in constant pain from the cancer.

Maroon's legal team is appealing this decision and is requesting that all letters by received by October 15, 2021 in order to submit them to Judge Scott. The hearing is expected to take place toward the end of October or in the beginning of November.

Please visit: to sign on to either or both of these very important letters. Maroon should be able to transition surrounded by his family and loved ones, not in a prison cell!

Support Clemency for Dr. Mutulu Shakur!

Dr. Mutulu Shakur is a political prisoner, sentenced to 60 years in prison because of actions motivated by his political beliefs. He was targeted and victimized by the FBI’s now-infamous Counter-Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) as early as 1968. Dr. Shakur has served over 30 years in prison, and is currently suffering from multiple myeloma (advanced bone marrow cancer). He has been denied parole 9 times and was recently denied a compassionate release.

Friends and Family of Dr. Mutulu Shakur has started a new campaign seeking Mutulu’s release by President Biden. We will be submitting a legal clemency petition to the President on Mutulu’s behalf, and this public petition is an important part of the campaign. We want to show the President that Mutulu has community — friends, family, and supporters — who will welcome him home.

Please sign the new petition for Mutulu’s release via Presidential clemency:

After you've signed the petition please also take a moment to share it widely with your friends and networks.

Thanks so much for your support.
