Dr. Mutulu Shakur denied mandatory parole... Again!

From: Family & Friends of Mutulu Shakur <>

​On May 16, 2022, Dr. Mutulu Shakur was denied mandatory parole by the U.S. Parole Commission.

This is the ninth time Dr. Shakur has been denied parole by the USPC, and the second time he has been denied mandatory parole.

Dr. Shakur received support for his parole from former Bureau of Prison staff, sitting Members of Congress, and religious and community leaders.

Despite this extensive support for his release and his dire medical condition, the USPC determined that:

“After consideration of all factors and information presented, at this time, the Commission is denying your release under the standards at 18 U.S.C. §4206(d) for the following reasons: The Commission finds that there is a reasonable probability that you will commit a Federal, State, or local crime if released.”

Dr. Shakur’s legal team will be appealing this decision, and along with Dr. Shakur Families and Friends of Mutulu Shakur will beexploring all possible next steps in the struggle for his immediate release. This is a protracted effort and we will continue to work for his release until we win.

Please sign the new petition for Mutulu’s release via Presidential clemency:
