Like so many people in correctional facilities in New York State and beyond, Maliki Latine has been going before the parole board year after year, with very little assistance or preparation, and little success. This time, with your help, we were able to fundraise and hire an excellent attorney to file an Article 78 over his 2014 parole denial, which will be decided on March 11th, 2016.

Now we are calling on you again, for letters of support for Maliki Latine’s upcoming parole hearing in April 2016. Volunteers from the amazing and much needed Parole Preparation Project of the National Lawyers Guild, NYC are facilitating his parole package and eagerly awaiting your letters. Letters should be mailed to the NLG PPP, at the address provided in the document below, on or before February 29, 2016.

Thank you so much for supporting this effort to return Maliki Shakur Latine to his family, friends and community! He appreciates each and every one of you and is very optimistic about this opportunity. Thank you for being part of this journey.
