Sundiata’s Public Hearing May 28th – Please attend!

Peace Everyone,

I am writing to share a legal update regarding Sundiata Acoli. Tomorrow morning (on Wednesday, May 28th) his lawyer will present an argument on his behalf in NJ Appellate Court. This is in response to the NJ State parole board’s continued denial of Sundiata’s release after serving 40 years in prison and completing his sentence.
The hearing is open to the public for anyone who would like to support and attend. Please feel free to share the info with anyone who might like to come.
For those who can’t make it, contributions towards Sundiata’s legal fees are also needed. Funds can be sent by logging into to and sending funds to The Sundiata Acoli Freedom Campaign at the email address:
