We want to bring Anthony Jalil Bottom back to his family and community. Mr. Bottom has been in prison since 1971, has expressed remorse and has an exceptional institutional record. He has served over 47 years in prison, and the Board of Parole should follow the law and release him on supervision. Mr. Bottom is a son, brother, father, grandfather and great grandfather.

Despite the fact that Mr. Bottom has an exemplary record, has mentored youth both inside and outside, has earned two degrees and written two books, he has been turned down for parole nine times. In June 2018, Mr. Bottom will be facing the Parole Board for the tenth time. It is way past time for Mr. Bottom to come home, as he should have been released in 2002, having served his full twenty-five year minimum. It will take the power of the people to free Mr. Bottom, as the PBA and the FOP are constantly waging a campaign for his continued imprisonment.
