Innocence March Returns to Sacramento to Ask Governor Brown for 12 Christmas Presents

Justin Brooks leading the march.

On December 20th, 6 months after the 712 mile Innocence March, families and friends of the California 12 returned to Sacramento to once again ask for clemency and remind the Governor that their loved ones still sit behind bars this holiday season.   As many of you know, this time of year is the toughest to be in prison, especially when you are innocent.  The Governor has been known to grant “Christmas Clemencies.”  Please check out the stories of the California 12 at www.innocencemarch.com and email the governor at http://bit.ly/JVtxrd to respectfully ask him to grant clemency to the 12 so they can be home with their families this Christmas.  The simple act of sending this email might be the best present you give this year!  Please ask your friends to do the same!  Happy Holidays!
