TELL MA TO PAUSE ON BUILDING NEW PRISONS TODAY

Did you know that the state of Massachusetts is proposing to spend 20-50 million dollars on a new prison, yet has spent zero tax dollars on restorative justice? Tell Massachusetts to PAUSE! Support bill s.2030 today. This bill would put a 5-year pause on all prison and jail construction, stopping a $20-50 million new women’s prison from being built and pausing adding any capacity to any jail or prison. This is a critical time in our history as we choose whether or not to imprison further generations and assess what different responses to harm look like. Send written testimony to E-mail jamie.howell-walton@mahouse.gov, mary.wasylyk@masenate.gov, and MAMoratorium@gmail.com
You don’t have to be fancy or profound; it’s okay to take 30 seconds to simply say “It’s time to end mass incarceration. I support S2030 because __________.” Spread the word and tell Massachusetts to invest in services, not prisons.
