#PAROLEWATCH Update: June 24, 2020

Day 2

For the second consecutive day, FREE ALABAMA MOVEMENT and FAM Queen Team lead a Protest at the Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles. We will be back at the Bureau tomorrow to complete our 3-Day Protest #J232425, where we are demanding immediate change to the Bureau’s operations and leadership.

Day 2 saw a continuation of the pattern of Institutional Racism that has defined the Bureau under Charlie Graddick.

There were 37 parole hearings today. 21 White, 15 Black and 1 Hispanic. For the second consecutive day, no Black woman was on the docket. The results were as follow:

1) 10 Total Paroles were GRANTED

2) 9 White males were granted parole

3) 1 Black male was granted parole.

This is the second day that people who are White were granted at least 80% of all Paroles.

We are seeing once again that race is playing a significant role in determining who is incarcerated and who is released. FAM, FAM Queen Team and other organizations and supporters will be on site and presenting our #FAM12DEMANDS to the Bureau of Pardons and Paroles.
