Demand Compassionate Clemency
Walter Hunter filed a petition for Compassionate Clemency that is now in the hands of the newly elected Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. Missouri CURE backs Walter Hunter's request, stating in a letter to Governor Greitens: "Mr. Hunter is a model prisoner who has been involved with the local prison branches of the NAACP for more than fifteen years. In appreciation of his impeccable conduct Mr. Hunter had been assigned to the privileged housing unit for the past ten years before being enrolled in hospice care. For many years Mr. Hunter assisted illiterate inmates with understanding institutional regulations and with articulating themselves. As a role model, Mr. Hunter has helped create a positive environment in corrections by providing other inmates with advice and guidance. Governor Greitens, Missouri CURE urges you to grant Mr. Hunter clemency so that he can die re-united with his family and in dignity."

Feb. 20, 2018: Legislative Update
As you may be aware, for some time a very negative atmosphere has been pervasive in our State Capitol. The only progressive criminal justice bills moving are those sponsored by Republicans. All the good ones sponsored by Democrats have not even been assigned to committees, with one exception: HB 2301 by Barbara Washington, a Democrat, to Raise the Age was referred to the Judiciary Committee. This is no doubt due to other Republican Raise the Age bills being advanced. Empower Missouri has been fighting long and hard for legislation that would raise to 18 the age for which young people are automatically tried as adults in criminal court.
