Pardon Campaign for Gabby Solano

Allison Tanner

November 20, 2022

The Sanctuary Working Group encourages you to send an email to Governor Newsom to support a pardon request for Gabby Solano, a woman who was recently deported to Mexico – a land she hasn’t been to since age 2. Gabby belongs with her family and community and a pardon can help bring Gabby back to California. 
You can support Gabby by submitting an email to Governor Newsom (choose Clemency – Pardon from the drop down menu, and “Pro”) Sample text “Hello. My name is _______, Im a member of Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church in Oakland and I urge Governor Newsom to grant a pardon for Gabriela Solano, (#W82038, A#036-908-921) an immigrant survivor of domestic violence, who was transferred to ICE and deported, even after she was granted parole in March of 2021. During 22 years in prison, Gabriela worked on her healing and became a mentor to other survivors. A pardon can reunite her with her support network, family, and loved ones in California.”
Thanks for your support and prayers for Gabby,
Pastor Allison
