Aug 2, 2013 | by admin

Our No More Jails Campaign is moving to a crucial stage as the County Board gets ready to vote on a potential expansion of the jail this Fall. In preparation, we would like to invite you to an action-oriented No More Jails planning session on August 21st at 6pm at the Independent Media Center.

Our No More Jails Campaign is moving to a crucial stage as the County Board gets ready to vote on a potential expansion of the jail this Fall.

The needs assessment report from Dr. Kalmanoff will be presented to the County Board and the public on September 24th. This report will be used by the county to make decisions about the criminal justice system and jails.

In preparation for this, we would like to invite you to an action-oriented No More Jails meeting on Wednesday, August 21st at 6pm at the Independent Media Center (in the downtown Urbana post office building at Broadway and Elm Streets).

We will give a progress report on the campaign, discuss our proposed plan of action for the coming weeks, and get your ideas. We want everyone to leave with a clear idea of what they can do to advance the campaign. Now is the time to step up our efforts.

Please come with your ideas and energy. We need you now more than ever.
No More Jails! Educate, Don’t Incarcerate!
