Apply Youthful Parole Laws Retroactively

Restore Justice needs your help creating retroactive parole opportunities for people currently incarcerated who were convicted before they turned 21.

Senate Bill 2073 would apply two recent youthful parole laws retroactively by allowing people who are already incarcerated to request a parole review. The laws, Public Act 102-1128 (2023) and Public Act 100-1182 (2019) created the first new parole opportunities in Illinois since our state abolished parole in 1978. Together, the laws ensure no children 17 and younger can receive a life without parole sentence; they also extend parole consideration to most people 18-20.

Please follow the steps of this petition and ask your state senator to vote yes on SB 2073.
