RALLY TO STOP 3-STRIKES LAWS IN MASSACHUSETTS

Community Rally to Stop the 3-Strikes Bill
Urgent Action for Criminal Justice Reform

Rally & Lobby Day
State House Steps
Thursday, March 15
11-1pm

Please join us and help spread the word!

 Tell your Reps and Senators to stop the 3-Strikes bill
 This dangerous bill will expand an overcrowded prison system
 It costs $48,000 a year to jail a prisoner; these funds could be used for jobs, schools, housing and transportation
 Incarceration breaks apart families but does not deal with the real causes of crime
 Stand up against mandatory sentencing and demand fairness in the criminal justice system

Help stop this costly and harmful bill before it is too late: the “Justice System” is Unjust and the time for action is now! We will rally on the State House steps and then enter the building to visit our elected officials.
