Hearing on a Moratorium on Prison Construction

Tue July 20, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm EDT

Prison Moratorium Bill

By pressing pause on prison and jail construction we’ll stop the proposal to build a new $50 million women’s prison from being built, and give the Commonwealth time to implement real justice practices that benefit all incarcerated people and their communities instead.    Read about the bill and why we need it.

S.2030 is being heard in committee on Tuesday July 20th, 10:30am-1:30pm, and we are looking for as many people and organizations as possible to speak in support of the moratorium.  Unfortunately you had to sign up by Friday the 16th to testify at the hearing.

You can also submit testimony in written form by e-mailing jamie.howell-walton@mahouse.gov or mary.wasylyk@masenate.gov by August 6th at 5pm. We encourage you to write op-eds or letters to the editor supporting the moratorium. People Not Prisons can help!

You can retweet and regram our posts. We need to show the huge, diverse support there is for the Commonwealth for investing in what different looks like!
