I need your help. I co-founded the Prison Policy Initiative to put the problem of mass incarceration — and the perverse incentives that fuel it — on the national agenda. Over the last 16 years, our campaigns have protected our democracy from the prison system and protected the poorest families in this country from the predatory prison telephone industry. Our reports untangle the statistics and recruit new allies.

But now, more than ever, we need your help to put data & compassion into the conversation.

Thank you.

We are co-organizing, with the Prison Birth Project, a meet and greet event for criminal justice-focused organizations and advocates in Western Massachusetts. Lots of local folks are doing great work to end mass incarceration, and we’d like to create a space where we can connect with each other and strengthen our work.

When: Tuesday, February 11th 2014 from 6-7:30 PM
Where: Peace Development Fund Office, 44 N. Prospect St. Amherst, MA
What: Pizza, conversation, and one-minute introductions from each organization

If you plan to attend, please RSVP so that we can order pizza, arrange childcare, print name tags and make a participant list that we can share with the other attendees.

We’d like to build as many connections as possible, so please forward this information and the RSVP link to any Pioneer Valley advocates who might be interested.

Let us know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you there!

    Sorry I know it’s less than an hour away but I didn’t realize I needed to RSVP. I don’t need child care or pizza! 🙂
