Thanks for Your Support! Please Share!

Family and Friends of Maliki Shakur Latine would like to give you a long overdue THANK YOU for all the support and love you’ve shown us on https://rally.org/maliki. We know there are many demands on your time, attention, and wallet in these troubling times and we thank you for thinking of Maliki Shakur Latine.

Maliki says he is doing well, moving on the path he wants to be on, and moving at the pace in which he wants to move. He says the funds have helped immensely, in terms of speeding things up. While he still has things to accomplish, he has already navigated around many of the bureaucratic hurdles placed before a human being leaving prison after 37 years.

If you have donated to Maliki’s release fund, thank you. We ask now that you share this update on social media and/or by word-of-mouth, and ask some community members to donate as well.

Also, NYC, please SAVE THE DATE of March 25, 2017, 4-8pm, for Futures without Walls, a welcome home celebration for Maliki Shakur Latine. Details coming soon!

We also hope you’ll show other people recently released and soon-to-be-released from prison the same solidarity. #GoBeyondGiving and help Zolo Agona Azania rebuild his life here.  Contribute to the Chelsea Manning Welcome Home Fund here. Look out for opportunities to donate to Oscar López Rivera’s release fund soon.

Of course please also don’t forget the many people still behind the walls. Check out organizations such as  NYC Anarchist Black Cross, the Anarchist Black Cross Federation, the Jericho Movement, the RAPP Campaign, and Parole Preparation Project of the National Lawyers Guild-NYC Chapter for more information!

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
August 23rd!

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.

Maliki Shakur Latine’s Birthday is August 23rd!

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, glitter, or other fun components which are unfortunately not allowed in most prisons. Try to send 1-2 weeks before the 23rd if possible. This week would be great!

2) Send a birthday donation to his legal fund!

As many of you know, the parole board has acknowledged that Maliki Shakur Latine has a stellar record of self-rehabilitation and community service and a low risk of reoffending, yet they denied him parole for the sixth time in 2014 and his appeal was denied in May 2015. Now he needs to raise 4000 dollars to file an article 78 appeal. Please donate what you can and give Maliki a gift that will count toward community healing and justice for his birthday.
