Dear Governor Wolf

The People’s Organization for Progress is appalled beyond words to learn of the life-threatening medical neglect of Mumia Abu-Jamal.

We are just as appalled about your inaction on that significant segment of the prison population facing similar Covid19 related medical challenges- aging prisoners.

We are most appalled to learn that dozens have already died from this disease that will spread dangerously in an environment that does not in any way allow for the required social distancing necessary to check its advance.

We condemn this neglect in the most express terms and demand that your office take the appropriate action and intervention immediately to address these intolerable and inhumane conditions!

We, therefore, call upon you to immediately release Mumia and all aging prisoners to relieve those spaces from the still very clear and present dangers of this disease as a both humanitarian gesture and as a matter of addressing the most dangerous public health challenge of our time.

Let not another life be senselessly lost when they can all be saved.

Release All Aging Prisoners Now!

Lawrence Hamm,
Chair
