Open our Hearts to our Incarcerated Neighbors

Somebody's Hurting our Incarcerated Neighbors, and We Won't Be Silent Anymore!
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, joined by partners and faith leaders, have announced a press conference and vigil to call attention to the grave injustices suffered by incarcerated people in Michigan. On the day that commemorates Saint Valentine, a faith leader who endured incarceration, Michigan Poor People’s campaign will stand together to say, “Somebody’s hurting our Incarcerated Neighbors, and it’s gone on far too long. We wont’ be silent anymore.”
Now is the time to ask Governor Whitmer, Michigan Legislators, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Michigan Department of Corrections to open their hearts to incarcerated residents of Michigan.
RSVP now to join us to shed light on the injustices in the Michigan Prison system and demand change.
Note: We are strictly enforcing mask wearing for all participants. Masks will be provided to those in need. Participants will meet on the steps of the Michigan State Capitol Building at 11:45 am. The press conference will start promptly at 12 noon.
After the press conference, participants will march to Governor Whitmer's Office, Michigan Department of Corrections, and Michigan Department of Corrections to deliver the demands of the 10-Point Michigan Prison Reform Platform. http://Bitly.com/MichPR
