Petition update

Neli is Safe in Florida

Kerima Cevik
Silver Spring, MD, United States

Feb 4, 2015 — Just got word from Neli' attorneys

"Thanks to Governor McAuliffe’s pardon, Neli Latson is now in Florida. He arrived there last night, enjoyed his first full day today, and sounded relaxed and relieved on the phone this evening. Neli knows that many, many people rallied in support of his right to receive treatment rather than imprisonment and he is very grateful for all that was done on his behalf."

"I hope this happy news brings you the same feeling of peace it gives Neli’s defense team. We know, as Neli does, that he has a lot of healing and learning and hard work ahead of him, but all of us know he is motivated and capable of that and more. Neli has much to contribute as a member of the community and we are so glad he will have that opportunity and that his time in prison is over."

Ariane Zurcher and I want to join Neli's defense team in repeating "Thank you for your efforts." "You’ve righted a wrong and made the world better."

It has been an honor to work with each and every one of you. You made change with 2030 signatures. Outstanding.
