Governor Corbett has cut millions from public education and social services while continuing to fund the state’s $685 million prison expansion plan.
We believe in a different set of priorities for Pennsylvania. Instead of sending more people to prison, we need to address the things that funnel people into the prison system. We want quality public schools, stable housing, jobs and job training programs, health care and food access, drug and alcohol treatment programs, community-based reentry services, and non-punitive practices that address the root causes of violence in our communities.
You can let Corbett know that he’s taking PA in the wrong direction! Follow us on twitter @decacreratePA, and retweet the photos to @GovernorCorbett using the hashtags #PAbudget and #NoNewPrisons.
Decarcerate PA is a grassroots campaign working to end mass incarceration in Pennsylvania. We demand that PA stop building prisons, reduce the prison population, and reinvest money in our communities.
