Prison Moratorium Bill Town Hall

Mon September 27, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Thank you for supporting the prison construction moratorium bills, S-2030 and
H-1905, to stop the building of new jails and prisons and a new $50 million
women’s prison.

The challenge now is to build support in the State Senate and House for the
moratorium Bill. This cannot be done without your support and support from
your community. We currently have 14 state senators in support of the bill
and we need 12 more senators on board.

We’re hosting a zoom town hall on Monday, September 27th at 6pm to discuss
the bill and next steps. Please join us — and a preview of actions are
linked below.
