As you may be aware Felix Garcia, an innocent Deaf man who has spent the past 32 years in prison, is up for clemency hearing in September. There is a Facebook page and petition that goes to the Florida Governor (the state where Felix is being held). If Florida Governor agrees to grant clemency to Felix, he will finally be free. YOUR support is NEEDED NOW by signing the petition, joining the Facebook page, and using #FREEFELIX.

In 2012, AFA wrote a letter to Governor Scott on behalf of Felix (see http://audismfreeamerica.blogspot.com/2012/01/afas-free-felix-letter-to-fla-governor.html). Below is more information we received concerning recent articles published, a tv spot, an op-ed written by Felix Garcia's pro-bono attorney, and other links.
Felix's freedom is in your hands!!
Let Freedom Roll
for Felix too!
