Release Aging People in Prison/RAPP (RAPPCampaign.com 
<http://rappcampaign.com>) plays a central role in changing the system 
of parole in NYS and contributing to the release of incarcerated elders, 
including political prisoners. RAPP is a mostly volunteer group that 
focuses on building the power of communities to advance the struggle for 
abolition. They are holding an online fundraising campaign to allow them 
to travel upstate to meet with people who are asking to become part of 
this effort. Here is the information:
Please support our work to #FreeOurElders by contributing to RAPP's fall 
fundraiser. We are more than one third of the way towards reaching our 
goal of $20,000. Help us get there by donating today.

These funds will help us cover the cost of our community organizing 
efforts, advocacy and educational materials, trips to Albany and other 
parts of New York State, honorarium for formerly incarcerated leaders, 
and other key aspects of our work.
