Jalil 2018 Parole Hearing


Once again, we are preparing for Jalil's upcoming parole hearing. This was to have occurred in June, but has been postponed untl September. Since the PBA, the FOP, and the Correctional Officers union are able to collect thousands of signatures against parole, we must work to gain as many signatures and letters of support for Jalil as possible. A hard copy of the petition can be downloaded here. This can be signed and returned to nycjericho@gmail.com.

You can also download and print out the parole campaign brochure explaining Jalil's case as a way of educating people about the political nature of the case and the parole board's constant denials despite national and international support for Jalil's release on parole.

We are making an effort to include letters of support for Jalil that are personalized and from people who are familiar with him and his work. If you want further instructions for how to write a strong, personalized letter of support, please email carroll.nora@gmail.com.

Jalil has also prepared a fact sheet for those who would like to write letters to the Parole Board on his behalf. Since the hearing will not occur until September, there is still time to write support letters for him.

Be sure to read the wonderful letter from Jalil's Mom Billie:
A Mother's Cry
in support of her son's release.
