People Not Prisons – Info session on Prison Moratorium
February 10, 2022 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Join Families for Justice as Healing on Thursday, February 10 at 6PM on ZOOM to learn why we need a Jail and Prison Construction Moratorium passed AND how we can shift resources to create thriving communities where everyone has access to housing, treatment, health care, education, and economic development!
As part of the upcoming exhibition at the Beard and Weil Galleries, Freedom is a Constant Struggle, we are hearing from the nonprofit Families for Justice as Healing. The organization is led by incarcerated women, formerly incarcerated women, and women with incarcerated loved ones with the mission to end the incarceration of women and girls.
They are working on getting a bill passed to establish a 5-year moratorium on jail and prison construction and expansion in Massachusetts. They want Wheaton’s support! Come learn how we can support the bill.
