Help Leonard Peltier get MEDICAL CARE & FREEDOM!

The Leonard Peltier Ad Hoc Committee
is raising funds for medical and release efforts

Leonard will be 80 years old in September 2024. He is suffering with severe medical issues, which are not being treated by the prison. He is losing his eyesight (blindness that can be prevented) and has a host of painful and serious healthcare problems. Our elder, Leonard Peltier, needs to be transferred to a medical facility that can and will give him medical care.

Most of all, Leonard needs to go home to be with his family and community outside of prison, after 48 long years.

Our Committee is raising funds for expenses related to retaining independent medical experts, accommodations, travel, materials, and other expenditures related to Leonard's medical care and release efforts. This is all critical to get him proper medical care and release from prison.

Please contribute what you can. Share this fundraiser.

You can also donate via Cash App to: $PeltierOfficialComm

Leonard Peltier's parole hearing is scheduled for June 10, 2024

While we greatly appreciate everyone’s support, we have a couple of requests:

Please do not go to Coleman. Having a group of people converge on the prison could cause them to postpone the hearing.

Please do not call the prison or the parole commission. Too many phone calls can disrupt the process.

Instead, we respectfully suggest gathering peacefully at federal buildings or sacred sites to hold pre-parole vigils, prayer vigils, candlelight vigils or any other form of lawful support for Leonard. Please: no violence. This will reflect badly on Leonard and could result in your arrest.

On the morning of the parole hearing – June 10th – Leonard’s Spiritual Advisor, Lenny Foster, will lead a worldwide day of prayer with a sunrise ceremony. Details to come.

In addition, we are still encouraging everyone to contact their state representatives or the Committee of the Judiciary about the lockdowns and denial of medical care. They may tell you, “That is not my district.” However, the United States is their district; Congress is charged with providing oversight to the BOP. • (202) 225-6906

Coleman 1 continues to enforce indefinite lockdowns. Leonard is routinely locked down for up to a week or more, which is hard on him physically and mentally. The BOP is torturing our people to death under the cover of lockdown.

Furthermore, Coleman 1 has denied critical medical care that Leonard needs.

Take Action for Joyce Powell and the Women at Bedford Hills!

On April 5, 2024, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake occurred that was felt strongly in Bedford Hills, a prison with many old buildings.

Instead of escorting the incarcerated women outside, they were ordered to lock in to their cells, the complete opposite of standard earthquake safety procedure.

Of course, the women were in a panic, so it took a while for them to calm down and eventually go their cells. Joyce Powell was helping them to overcome their panic.

Disciplinary hearings were held and 30 women are being collectively punished with Tier II tickets, and several of them were placed in SHU. A Tier II ticket means the loss of commissary and packages for 30 days. These tickets should be rescinded and the women should have all their privileges reinstated.

Joyce Powell #07G0632 was in the room where the hearings were held in the evening, but she had to return to her cell to get something to eat after receiving an insulin shot. Her sugar level was dropping and she had the shakes. Once she returned to her cell and ate something, she asked the officer on her unit if she should return to the hearing, but was told they would continue the next morning, which did not happen.

So, in violation of all DOCCS rules and despite never having a hearing, Joyce was informed that she was issued a Tier II ticket. Paperwork is also supposed to be issued with the ticket, but this has still not happened. Joyce has not received any paperwork, so she is unable to file a grievance contesting the ticket.

Please call and email the following officials to protest both the collective punishment of 30 women at Bedford Hills and the unjust treatment of Joyce Powell.

Call Bedford Hills at 914-241-3100 and ask to speak to Superintendent Eileen Russell. Her email is:

Also call DOCCS Commissioner Daniel F. Martuscello III at 518-457-8126. His emails are:;

Of course, also email the Office of Special Investigations (you will probably be referred to them when you call the commissioner's office):
