Photos from the People's Hearing on Prison Expansion

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who came out yesterday for the People's Hearing on Prison Expansion. Despite reports of an incoming storm, we were able to bring three buses of people to Harrisburg to deliver a clear message to policymakers: mass incarceration is not the answer to Pennsylvania's problems. We want investment in education, healthcare, housing, jobs, food access, reentry, and transformative forms of justice that address the root causes of violence.

Special thanks to Philadelphia Student Union, Youth United for Change, BPSOS Delaware Valley, G-LAW, the Human Rights Coalition, Fight For Lifers West, the CHARLES Foundation, The Center for Returning Citizens, The Youth Art & Self-empowerment Project, Why Not Prosper, Larry Stephenson and Eddie Ramirez for your powerful testimony.

We are honored and inspired to be in this struggle with all of you!
