Purpose: Build black-led, anti-racist political power in our community, change statewide policy around mass incarceration that has had a negative impact on the black community and other minority communities. Create a Community Review Board as a means of conditional release for those with long term sentences in prison.
We could really use your help getting the word out to our black families. This is a relational event so we are only inviting folks that we are connected to, folks that have been touched by mass incarceration and folks that are organizing against it.
*This event is rooted in an African/African-American experience that welcomes and embraces all people. Children and Families welcome! Drinks & Refreshments will be served!
