Sign the letter; write your name and mailing address; and mail or fax your letter today. Mail to: Federal Bureau of Prisons Address: 320 1st Street, NW, Washington, DC 20534 Fax: (202) 514-6620 Sample Text Often a handwritten heartfelt letter is quite effective. Remember to always employ a respectful tone and keep your comments brief and to the point. If you wish, you may adapt the following text. Harley G. Lappin, Director U.S. Bureau of Prisons 320 First Street, NW Washington, DC 20534 Dear Mr. Lappin: It has come to my attention that Leonard Peltier #89637-132, an inmate at the U.S. Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, is in dire need of medical attention. I believe that Mr. Peltier's medical needs are urgent. He needs to be seen by proper medical staff. Therefore, I respectfully request that Leonard Peltier be transferred to FCI-Oxford in Wisconsin or FMC-Rochester in Minnesota. Either of these facilities can adequately accommodate Mr. Peltier's medical needs. Thank you in advance for transferring Leonard Peltier and immediately addressing his medical needs! Sincerely, Signature Thank you for all you do on Mr. Peltier's behalf. Time to set him free... Because it is the RIGHT thing to do. Friends of Peltier http://www.FreePeltierNow.org
