Kempis “Ghani” Songster works for the Amistad Law Project after being released from prison this year. In 1987, he murdered a young man named Anjo Pryce. Despite the fact that Kempis was only 15, he was convicted of first-degree murder and received a mandatory life sentence without parole. He’s what’s called a juvenile lifer. Sentenced to life in prison when he was a child. He’s 45 now and spent 30 years locked up. There are hundreds more juvenile lifers like him in Pennsylvania. And thousands more across the country. He works actively for healing justice and for the end of life without parole (death by incarceration) sentences and for others to be released. This event is a part of AFSC’s annual Corporation meeting, bringing together Quakers from throughout the United States to consider together the work of the organization and how to further social justice.
