What Would You Build #InsteadOfPrisons?
Monday Action Alert! This Monday, we are asking everyone to join our friends in New Sanctuary Movement tomorrow for an "un-Thanksgiving dinner" in front of Philadelphia’s City Hall, where they’ll be demanding an immediate end to police-ICE collaboration and for just, humane and inclusive immigration reform. Instead of investing in incarceration & detention, we want policies that keep families together!
Tell us what you want to see instead of prison expansion! You can post images right here, tweet at us (@DecarceratePA) or share on our Facebook page. Spread the word and help us envision a better future for Pennsylvania #insteadofprisons!
Each day until December 31, we are posting an image from our collective imagination of what we would build instead of prisons. We call on Pennsylvania legislators and Governor Corbett to cancel all ongoing prison construction and resolve to make 2014 a Year of No New Prisons!
The #insteadofprisons images we post were created by people around the state as part of Decarcerate PA’s March for A People’s Budget, Not a Prison Budget. When we met with people in Philadelphia before the march, and as we walked from town to town, we asked Pennsylvanians to make a flag and share with us what they would build #insteadofprisons.
Don’t forget to tell us what you would build #insteadofprisons and ask your friends and family to do the same!
