The graying of Pennsylvania's prisons by Speaking Freely With the ACLU-PA published on 2018-12-05T15:33:48Z In 1980, the average age of people serving death-by-incarceration, or life-without-parole, in Pennsylvania was 33. Today it's 48. And there are more than 1400 people serving DBI in the commonwealth who are over the age of 60. In episode 16, we hear from Tomiko Shine and Karen Lee of Aging People in Prison Human Rights Campaign. APPHRC advocates for the release of elderly people who are incarcerated, through legal and policy advocacy, and is starting a new chapter in Philadelphia. Also, ACLU-PA has a brand new website to advance transgender equality, transformationpa.org. Naiymah Sanchez, our transgender advocacy coordinator, talks about the features of the site and how it empowers trans Pennsylvanians to know their rights. Learn more about APPHRC at apphrc.com. The first meeting of APPHRC's Philadelphia chapter is Saturday, December 29, at 1 p.m. at the Free Library's Widener Branch Library at 28th Street and W. Lehigh Avenue. You can connect with the chapter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
