Speak Out ... On March on Washington

Return to March on DC Media Archive

In a few months, we will be going to Washington to march in support of inmates in Alabama and other places (www.journeyforjustice.org). The event begins with a welcome reception on Friday, Aug. 12. On Saturday, Aug. 13, at 9 a.m., we will meet in Lafayette Park on the north side of the White House for a demonstration.

We call for relatives of inmates, friends, activists, organizations, former inmates and more to join us. There are more than [two] million men and women in state and federal prisons in this country.

The march will focus on abuse (medical and physical), mass incarceration, voter disenfranchisement and much more. Anyone interested in standing on behalf of their loved one, please visit the Web site and register. We can send a powerful message that this country relies too much on incarceration and not enough on education and rehabilitation.
