(Rain or shine!)
Native American elder, Leonard Peltier has been incarcerated for more than 46 years and has always maintained his innocence. Amnesty has been calling for Leonard’s release for decades due to unfairness in his trial, including coerced and recanted testimony, withheld evidence, and racism. He is 78 years old, in declining health and suffers from a number of life-threatening illnesses.
Time is running out for Leonard, although momentum is building as more people around the world call for his release! US Senators and Representatives have been sending letters urging President Biden to grant him clemency. In February 2022, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution calling for his release and declared February 24, 2022 as a Day of Solidarity with Leonard Peltier.
In honor of Human Rights Day, San Francisco human rights community members are holding a press conference with the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, other legislators and community members, calling on our Members of Congress to urge President Biden to release Leonard Peltier immediately—before it’s too late! Let’s do what we can to help Leonard get back home safely so that he can spend his remaining time with his loved ones on his Native land.
