Hello friends,

In August, activist and long-held political prisoner Russell Maroon 
Shoatz was denied compassionate release despite serious life-threatening 
medical conditions. This ruling was made by Judge Kai Scott, on the 
grounds that he presents “an undue risk of escape or danger to the 
community.”

Organizers with the Free Maroon Campaign/Coalition ask that you sign the 
following letter to Judge Kai Scott asking her to reconsider her 
decision. You'll be joining Joyce Ajlouny, General Secretary of the 
American Friends Service Committee and the 1947 Nobel Peace Laureate, 
and Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, director of the Quaker United Nations 
Office in Geneva, and countless others in supporting Shoatz and his 
desire to transition in the presence of loved ones.

You can find a link to the letter and the form here:

Thank you for your attention to and consideration of this urgent matter.

Best,
Ben Barson
