Action Alert: Demand Medical Treatment for Anarchist Prisoner Jerome White-Bey
55 year old Jerome White-Bey continues to be unjustly confined in Ad Seg (the hole), denied medical treatment for liver disease. A prison doctor prescribed interferon treatment for Jerome’s liver disease, however the Regional Medical Director Dr. Conley and the Director Mr. George A. Lombardi has refused to transfer him. Denying such treatment could prove deadly. Denial of medical care is one of the many ways that the prison system abuses political and politicized prisons.
Jerome is reaching out to those on the outside to pressure officials to provide him with the treatment he deserves.
People are encouraged to write letters and make phone calls to:
1. George A. Lombardi (Director)
2. Ms. Lisa Jones
3. Dr. Conley (Regional Medical Director)
4. Ms. Gloria Perry (MD Chief Medical Officer)

Dear Director Lombardi,
I write to you out of deep concern for prison inmate Jerome White-Bey #37479 who is suffering from liver disease. The visiting doctor prescribed interferon treatment for him, but he continues to be denied this treatment. If gone untreated, his condition could worsen.
I am asking that you immediately grant Mr. White-Bey the interferon treatment he needs to protect his health and to remove him from administrative segregation. Under the Eigth Amendment prisoners are entitled to adequate medical care. I hope that you take immediate action to uphold Mr White-Bey’s rights and health.
I and all who share concern would be gratified by a reply from you as soon as possible. Thank you for your time on this important matter.
