The Office of the Governor Bruce Rauner Governor of Illinois 207 State House Springfield, IL 62706   Re: Supporting Alisha Walker’s Appeal for Clemency   Dear Governor Rauner,   I am writing today to express my support for Alisha Walker’s Appeal for Clemency.   On Feb 11th, 2016,  Alisha Walker was sentenced to 15 years in Illinois state prison for refusing to be killed or to allow her friend to be killed by a man who held a knife against them, threatening to kill them, and refusing to allow them to leave his home. I urge you to please take the time to review the facts in Alisha’s case.   I believe the facts will show that she should be released from Decatur Correctional Center immediately. Thankfully, a groundswell of support is forming, made up of family, friends, and advocacy groups who believe very strongly that no one is disposable, and that no one should be denied the right to self-defense based on their identity or work. You can bring her home to this loving and supportive community, please do the right thing.   Sincerely,   (Name & contact information)
