Clemency Petition Volunteer

About CAARPR

Since 1973, when it was born from the movement to free Angela Davis and all political prisoners, the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression has defended the rights of oppressed people in Illinois and around the world.

We defend the civil liberties of workers, activists, and prisoners. We struggle against white supremacy, the prison-industrial complex, and state violence. We demand community control of the police and full representation for Black people and other poor and oppressed people at all levels of government.

The Clemency Team

Executive clemency is when the Governor of Illinois forgives a person for a crime by commuting their sentence or pardoning them. CAARPR's Clemency Team researches and writes petitions for executive clemency in collaboration with incarcerated individuals who seek pardons or sentence commutations from the governor.

The Work

Creating clemency petitions requires research, writing, collecting letters of support, getting in touch with attorneys and family members, and communicating with people who are incarcerated. While clemency petitions are legal documents, legal experience isn't required (but is definitely a plus!).
