America's judicial system consistently violates constitutional and human rights by design. Unfortunately, African American's make up a high percentage of injustice even though we account for only 13 percent of the population. I am requesting that President Joe Biden pardons Ms. Gwen Levi, who is 76 years old and poses no threat.

A little background on this story.

Ms. Gwen was in prison for a drug related crime. After serving two thirds of her sentence and during the peak height of the COVID crisis, she was released under certain circumstances. She had missed a phone call from federal authorities due to being in her computer class, which was also confirmed by her teacher. They began to call her at 10:54am, and 1:17pm, they had labeled her as an escape. Even as her location was accounted for and confirmed by her teacher. To make matters worse, she was told since she could have been out robbing a bank, that she would be treated as such. As a 76 year old women who advocates for multiple prisoner advocacy organizations within Baltimore City, this is a horrendous injustice. Accountability needs to be held. 

Listed below are some more background stories on this case.
