Please Urge Governor Brown to Allow the Release of Tammy Sue Walters on Parole

    1. Petition by

      California Coalition for Women Prisoners and Justice Now

Tammy Sue Walters has been incarcerated 22 years on her 17-years-to-life sentence.

Ms. Walters was a juvenile when sentenced as an adult to 17 years-to-life, and has been incarcerated for 22 of her 36 years.  She has received exemplary recommendations from several Lieutenants for her continued positive attitude while housed in Valley State Prison for Women as a Level II (low security), and continues to work hard on her self improvement by tutoring other prisoners, participating in 12-step and numerous other transformative programs, and studying for the last three years with Coastline College.

This is the second consecutive year that the Board has found Ms. Walters eligible for parole and therefore does not pose a safety risk. The parole decision now goes to Governor Brown. Please urge the governor to uphold Ms. Walters's parole. Thank you.

      Governor Brown,

      There are so many women who are in your prisons that were abused and are not a threat to society. Why don't you let them go (like Moses).

      How many good people are wasting their lives in prison? Who profits from this abuse?
