Recently we posted our outrage about the failed justice for Cyntoia Brown and we are now making a call for ACTION!
It’s time for justice for Cyntoia Brown. NOW supports her appeal and also the lawsuit challenging her sentence as unconstitutional under the U.S. Supreme Court’s challenge to mandatory life sentences without the chance of parole for juvenile offenders.
NOW further supports Cyntoia Brown’s bid for clemency from Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam. It shames us as a society if we are to consign a life that has known nothing but abuse to a life sentence in prison—all before she was even old enough to vote.
You can do your part to help Cyntoia Brown by flooding the governor’s office of Tennessee today with calls and emails for clemency. Governor Bill Haslam departs his office in January and holds the power to grant clemency before he leaves. With this looming deadline… action is vital! Let’s get on the phone to make calls and online to send emails.
Gov Bill Haslam
We must end the criminalization of trauma. Cyntoia Brown inspires us to push even harder for justice, fairness and healing—but first, Cyntoia Brown must be heard.
