Religious Leaders Request Commutation of Sentence for Sundiata Acoli!

We believe that in a universe that bends toward justice, Sundiata Acoli deserves to be at home with his family and live out his final years in his community.

In June of 2020, nearly fifty religious leaders from across New Jersey told New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy when asking for a commutation of Sundiata’s sentence:

“We, the undersigned clergy of New Jersey write to express our collective support for the immediate release of Sundiata Acoli from prison. We strongly urge you to use your executive authority to do so. As faith leaders, we believe in redemption and salvation - tenets that could not be more appropriately understood than in the case of this 83 year old man in failing health who has been incarcerated for the past 48 years. Mr. Acoli is incarcerated from conviction of charges in the state of New Jersey and is currently serving his sentence in a federal prison in Cumberland, MD.

We understand and appreciate the seriousness of the crimes for which he was convicted. Our request is in no way meant to denigrate the victims’ families or ignore the loss of life. However, it is our belief that Mr. Acoli has been more than adequately punished for those acts. The continued incarceration of this senior citizen serves no useful purpose as Mr. Acoli represents absolutely no threat to public safety. For more than 25 years he has had a completely infraction free record in prison. This exemplary accomplishment coupled with his age and the over 100 programs, classes and certificates he has been awarded all provide ample reason for you to feel confident that releasing him is the right and humane thing to do.” the statement said in part.

With our collective prayers, diligent work and unyielding faith, we are sure to #BringSundiataHome this year.

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.
