Hi, my name is [X] and I’m [calling/writing] to ask President Biden to please commute Leonard Peltier’s sentence and grant him clemency immediately so he can live out the rest of his life with his family on his ancestral homelands. Now 78 years old and in deteriorating health, Peltier is the longest-serving political prisoner in the U.S. There is overwhelming proof that he did not commit any offense on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Even a former FBI agent and the federal prosecutor involved in Peltier’s sentencing have publicly stated and written to you that his continued incarceration is unjust and must come to an end.
Leonard Peltier wants to be reunited with his family and to hug his grand-children. Please do the right thing and release him from federal prison immediately.

“Leonard Peltier, a citizen of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians (ND), is in his 48th year of imprisonment. He is serving two life sentences for aiding and abetting in the deaths of two FBI agents during a shootout on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota in 1975 – a case where his co-defendants, principally charged with the crime, were found not guilty on grounds of self-defense. Mr. Peltier will be 79 years old on September 12, 2023 – now a frail and elderly man who continues to serve out his sentence at the maximum-security facility at the United States Penitentiary – Coleman, in central Florida. Imprisoned at the age of 32, his conviction is turning into a de facto death sentence.”
