After 33 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, Abdullah Majid is finally scheduled to have his first parole hearing in 2015. He is asking for your support with letters to the parole board for his release. Abdul has so much to offer to communities on the outside with his youth development, teaching, leadership and counseling skills and letters from community organizations are welcome also.
His family earnestly wishes him to rejoin them, his elderly mother in particular needs him to stay with her. We encourage family and friends to attest to Abdul’s achievement with a letter to the parole board, including: his parenting skills, good character, Associate’s Degree in business administration, work with Lifer’s Organization including teaching classes for young adults on adjusting to prison and coping with long sentences, legal research, and civics.
