Ali is a friend of CPF. We need him home. Please take a minute to sign this and pass it on.

Our friend & All of Us or None Organizer Willard "Ali" Birts is facing serious legal trouble. After dismissing old charges on the grounds of "insufficient evidence," the San Mateo County District Attorney decided to refile. It looks like the case will be going to trial mid-September. Now, after successful reentry in which he has a job, a stable residence, and re-connected relationship with his daughter, Ali faces spending the rest of his life in prison. That's in addition to the time and money already spend in jail, and currently while on an electric monitor (all while "presumed innocent"!).Support Ali by signing the petition, which we'll deliver to the District Attorney and to the judge presiding over the case
