Tell the California Governor Jerry Brown to honor the demands on the prisoners in the Pelican Bay SHU.

Description

In mid October 2012, members of the Pelican Bay hunger strike movement  issued an open letter to Governor Jerry Brown asking for his support and intervention on their behalf, demanding substantive policy changes to their conditions of confinement, and citing the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR)’s failure to meaningfully commit to agreements made following the hunger strike. We ask you to take action in solidarity with these prisoners and please write to Governor Jerry Brown asking for his support and intervention on their behalf.
