UJP Activist: Rally and Lobby Day to Stop 3-Strikes Law








RALLY AND LOBBY DAY TO STOP 3-STRIKES LAW
============================================================




When: Thursday, March 15, 2012, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
Where: State House steps • 24 Beacon St. • Park St T • Boston




A statewide network of community organizations and supporters will be  holding a
major demonstration and lobby day in opposition to the 3-strikes bill  being
considered at the State House.  



The rally will highlight a diverse group of speakers who will warn of  the
economic and social consequences of these regressive criminal justice  policies.

The Rally and speaking portion will run between 11-12pm.  Between  12-1pm,
participants will visit the offices of legislators and deliver signed  advocacy
cards.  

The goal for the action is to show the breadth of opposition to the  misguided
policies and add power and media attention to the resistance effort.
