Stop this injustice now!
Janetta is one of the people trapped in prison because of this discrimination. She was denied parole in 2015 and fears, because of her psychiatric disability, she will be left to die in prison. While she is formally eligible for parole, Janetta is in the impossible position of needing to convince the parole board that she does not have a psychiatric disability in order to achieve parole. She is currently applying for a commutation of her sentence from Governor Newsom, with the goal of being released to a community-based program capable of providing her with support and mental healthcare services.

The research is clear: mental illness is not a criminogenic factor that should be used to extend incarceration. Please commute Janetta Levia's sentence immediately thank you!
