Pennsylvania has more than 5,400 people serving life without parole sentences, and many of them are aging or ill, have rehabilitated themselves during decades of incarceration, and no longer pose a threat to public safety. Each prisoner over age 50 costs taxpayers $70,000 - $100,000 each year. Pennsylvania should ask whether life without parole sentences are a cost-effective and humane way to maintain public safety. 

 

Join representatives from FAMM for a discussion about providing a pathway to parole eligibility for deserving Pennsylvanians, and learn how creating parole eligibility for lifers can positively impact our communities.
