Unite in Albany on May 10 for Parole and Prison Justice!

Today is my first Wednesday Action Alert.
I was going to put together a list of alerts from movements I follow.
But, this week, I only have to announce one event, in Albany on May 10.
A convergence of many movements against mass incarceration.
Text below is direct from the Challenging Incarceration page.
I added links to many groups and campaigns. Follow them all and sign up! 
Get out on the street! See you in Albany next Wednesday!
#NoMorePrisons

Join Challenging Incarceration and New Yorkers struggling for justice statewide for our May 10th lobby day in Albany, Unite for Parole and Prison Justice: A Day of Advocacy and Action. The day will focus on amplifying our message demanding an end to mass incarceration and parole injustice, state violence and torture, and state-sanctioned racism and identity-based oppression, and the promotion of community empowerment. Our May 10th legislative advocacy will place a particular emphasis on bringing people home through a more humane parole system.


Dozens of organizations are coming together to end mass
incarceration in all its forms! We demand
Parole reform now! Bring our people home!
