Dear Governor Brown,

In the spirit of all mothers who give birth with love and hope in their hearts, I ask you to offer a living chance to the 5,000 people in California’s prisons who have been sentenced to Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOP).

I applaud the historic number of LWOP commutations that you have granted and hope that you will continue to recognize that people have the capacity to change, grow and be rehabilitated, which an LWOP sentence denies. This powerful new video speaks to the urgent need to #DROP LWOP!

I look forward to your Mother’s Day 2018 Commutations!

Thank you,
