PLEASE WRITE and call THE PENNSYLVANIA BOARD OF PAROLE AND PROBATION ASKING THAT THEY FREE THESE INNOCENT PRISONERS:

Debbie Sims Africa #006307
Janet Holloway Africa #006308
Janine Phillips Africa #006309
Michael Davis Africa #AM-4973
Charles Sims Africa #AM-4975
William Phillips Africa #AM-4984

This is the second year, after THIRTY, that they have been eligible for parole. They were all denied last year. Again, the prisons all support their freedom based on their good behavior. We need public pressure to get them home.

Here is the contact information directly from the website:

Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole
1101 South Front Street, Suite 5100
Harrisburg, PA 17104-2517
(717) 787-5699

"if you wish to provide comments on a specific case, you must put the information in writing and send it to the above address. This will serve to ensure that your comments are available to the decision-maker on the case. If you want a response to your written correspondence, you must include a return address" [http://www.pbpp.state.pa.us/pbppinfo/cwp/view.asp?a=3&q=154164]

It is best that people BOTH call AND write as often as possible, as the April hearings approach.
Please call and write this month, March! Provide all 8 names as listed above along with each of their prison I.D. numbers, also listed above.


Thank you!!!
