RELEASE THE AGING

AND ELDERLY

RELEASE THE AGING

AND ELDERLY

Currently over 5,400 people are serving life sentences without the possibility of parole (what we call "Death By Incarceration"). We believe that the incarceration of aging people is not only inhumane, but also unnecessary because older people are much less likely to re-offend after release. 

In the time of COVID-19, every prison sentence is a death sentence, especially for aging and medically vulnerable folks. Tell your representatives, the DOC, and Governor Wolf to #FreeOurPeople now!

In partnership with groups across the state, we are advocating for decarceration during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to save lives. 

Read our demands below.
