TO:

The Honorable Tom Wolf 

Office of the Governor 

508 Main Capitol Building Harrisburg, PA 17120 


Governor Wolf: 

Incarceration during a global pandemic clearly should not be a death sentence. Mumia Abu Jamal and more than 2,400 other individuals are currently being subjected to a  COVID-19 outbreak at the Mahanoy Correctional Facility in Frackville, PA. This is creating a  dire situation for every person at the Mahanoy Correctional Facility, especially those older  individuals with compromised immune systems. 

As such, I implore you in the interest of justice to relocate all incarcerated individuals with COVID-19 symptoms to off-site medical facilities and to also consider a compassionate release for Mumia Abu Jamal and all other aging, vulnerable, and immune-compromised  prisoners in the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (PADOC).

Sincerely Yours, 

Edwin R. Ferris 

International Secretary-Treasurer
