GARY TYLER, once the youngest person on Death Row in America, turns 60  on July 10, 2018. Gary was framed for murder in Louisiana when he was 16, sentenced to death and given an execution date of May 1,1976. His case was internationally known. Gary spent 41 1/2 years in Angola prison Louisiana  and was released in April 2016. He was an innocent teenager and spent decades in a notorious prison.

We ask for any donation. However, for those donating $60 or more, you will be invited to Gary Tyler's birthday celebration in Santa Monica on Sunday  July 15, with THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS. (That's $1.50 per year that Gary was incarcerated)

WHY DONATE
As a teenager on death row Gary was never able to develop a work history. Thus, unlike the rest of us, he was released without a penny in social security and must work until he is 69 to even qualify for the minimum.  We feel it is our duty to provide some financial support for Gary as he reenters society. In the two years since release he has begun the process of reentry, and that includes the simplest things like shopping in a store, learning how to drive, getting a drivers license,
He has been working with homeless youth at SPY in Venice California. In addition he has been a powerful community speaker on issues of ending the death penalties and the problems of mass incarceration. he has spoken at USC (5 times), UCLA, CSUN, CSU Long Beach, UC Irvine, Loyola Law School, Loyola Marymount, New West Charter High School, Tim Robbins Actors Gang (2X), Jackson Browne's Prop 62 Concert, All Saints Episcopal Church, Hastings Law School and many other venues. We want to provide financial support as Gary Tyler develops his life and work as an important community leader.
 All the money raised after expenses for refreshments will go to Gary Tyler. I have already raised the money to pay the band.
  I will be responsible for all withdrawals and allocation to Gary Tyler and for any expenses. BOB ZAUGH

I want to thank everyone for supporting this Birthday campaign for Gary Tyler. About 125 people showed up at the party to hear an introduction of gary Tyler by Mike Farrell, and a few words from Gary Tyler who announced he was going to go all Benjamin Button and start un-aging. And then a knockout concert by the Chambers Brothers.We will probably have some pics to post after Wed. I am still awaiting a final expense but it looks like Gary will receive about $15,000 from your generosity . Thank you !!

Upcoming for Gary Tyler: Sept 17-21 at Viterbo University and Univ Wisconsin, La crosse. September 23 Death Penalty Focus event 400 N Vermont Los Angeles in support of Kevin Cooper who is on Death Row and finally getting a DNA investigation. Also, Gary will be back at Robert Scheer's course at USC in August or September. Those wanting more details can email me at babazaba@aol.com or join me on Facebook. Regards, Bob Zaugh
