May 5th is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving designed to help communities and nonprofit organizations effectively respond to the extraordinary need caused by COVID-19.


IPP has been central to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic in Illinois's prisons.  Since the outbreak at the beginning of March, we have freed three elderly people serving life sentences and brought them home to their families, including Mr. Powell, who served 36 years in prison for being the getaway driver in a gas station robbery.  We have advocated for a reduction of the prison population, provided tools to lawyers and the community, and have filed dozens of commutation petitions on behalf of sick and elderly people in prison.  IPP is marshaling every resource available to stand in the gap for people who are too often forgotten, especially during times of crisis. 

 

Help IPP continue to protect people like Mr. Powell by supporting IPP's work on #GivingTuesdayNow. As the number of people testing positive for COVID-19 in Illinois's prisons continues to rise, IPP's work is critical.  We can't do it without your support.
