A few updates: the Article 78 appeal of Maliki Shakur Latine’s 2014 parole denial was unfortunately denied earlier this summer. We remain very hopeful about his 2016 parole hearing, likely to take place this October or sooner!
In the meantime, Maliki’s birthday is coming up on
Here are three things you can do as the day approaches . . .
1) Send him a birthday card!
Let him know he is not forgotten on his birthday! Find or make a simple card without layers, glue or glitter and write a personal message. Try to send 1-2 weeks before the 23rd if possible. Today would be perfect!
2) Send a birthday donation to his release fund!
There is a real chance Maliki Shakur Latine will come home this fall! Believe! And contribute to his release fund to help him get on his feet!
3) Get in touch!
The NLG Parole Preparation Project is putting final touches on Maliki Shakur Latine’s parole packet. If you have resources to offer, such as housing or employment for Maliki Shakur Latine, please get in touch as soon as possible and let us know! We want to provide as many options as possible. We’d also like to hear from you if you are interested in visiting Maliki Shakur.
