Kaila Mathis started this petition to Alameda County's District Attorney Nancy O'Malley

Berthaurd "Region"  Lewis is an amazing community member in Oakland and beyond. For 20 years, Region has been active in the community as an organizer and Black Urban Farmer. 

Region has already served a 10 year sentence over 20 years ago, which is being held against him in his current case.

Last year was a tough year for him, he suffered from a drug addiction and reached bottom and committed a nonviolent crime. A mistake he sincerely regrets, upon bailing out, he fought hard to get his life back together. He put himself in a drug program called OPTIONS Recovery and continued to give back to his community. 


Despite knowing about his fight to better his life, the District Attorney’s Office offered him an 8 year prison sentence. This excessive punishment should not be accepted! 


Help as we fight to let the Alameda County’s District Attorney know that community is in support of him as he continues his journey to rehabilitate himself outside of prison. 

Please sign and call the Alameda Countys District Attorney's Office to let them know that community wants alternatives to incarceration when it comes to Region's case. (510)272-6222
