WHAT:  Community Coalition for Clemency: You can help 14 Women seek clemency. The purpose of the new organization is to advocate for incarcerated women in Missouri who received sentences that were disproportionate to their crimes, and in many cases, harsher than what anyone would receive in similar circumstances today. The Coalition asks Governor Nixon to reflect on the words of Pope Francis and show mercy to these women. Several of them have life sentences based on crimes committed against domestic and sexual abuse perpetrators. Just recently Pope Francis labeled life-long prison terms as a “hidden death penalty”.
WHEN: Act now and help make the lives of these women and their families better in the new year. Follow the link and add your name to the petition https://www.change.org/p/jeremiah-nixon-grant-clemency-for-14-women-in-missouri-prisons
