In 1977, in Fargo, North Dakota, Leonard Peltier was found guilty of two murders he did not commit and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences. Even before contracting COVID-19 in prison, Leonard called his daily life hell --
"I’m in hell, and there is no way to deal with it but to take it as long as you can. I cling to the belief that people are out there doing what they can to change our circumstances in here."
Would you please sign the letter from spiritual and faith leaders, calling on President Biden to grant immediate clemency to Leonard Peltier?
If you consider yourself a keeper of faith or spiritual traditions, would you please sign the letter TODAY? And also share the letter with your friends, loved ones, and colleagues?
Please spread the word and help bring Leonard home to the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa, North Dakota.
The letter has been approved by the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee and the Rise Up for Peltier Group, both of which have worked diligently toward Leonard's release for decades.
Thank you so much!
