DC Criminal Justice Reform & Reinvest
April 11, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

You’re invited to join Angela Davis and asha bandele for Ending America’s Obsession with Punishment & Prisons: A Conversation about Healing, a DPA telephone town hall next Monday, April 11, from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. ET.

This town hall is free and open to the public. But space is limited so register right now to participate.

Thanks to donors like you, our movement has made incredible progress. We are at a critical moment in our long push to reform our nation’s criminal justice and drug policies.

As we look to push the envelope on freedom ever further, we are asking ourselves – and you – how to shift our thinking from simply ending mass incarceration to ending mass criminalization; and how to repair the harm done to people and communities after nearly 50 years of the disastrous drug war.

There is no one better positioned to help us unpack these inquiries than civil rights activist, scholar and writer Angela Davis, whose work not only the laid the foundation to challenge the prison industrial complex, but whose ongoing labor continues to call us to greater heights in the climb toward justice.

I’m thrilled that Angela will be joining me for the Ending America’s Obsession with Punishment & Prisons telephone town hall and I hope you will join the conversation next Monday, April 11, from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. ET.

We so want you to be a part of the thinking. We want you to ask your questions and help us consider critical next steps in not only undoing the policies that made us the world’s largest incarcerator, but envisioning new policies so that we don’t ever find ourselves in this place again.

Don’t miss this opportunity Register right now to participate.
