Prison Justice
People's Movement Assembly

1pm - 5:30 pm Cobo Hall 03-45

  • We recognize that the United States has the highest rate of incarceration on the planet.  This imprisonment disproportionately targets communities of color and the poor.
  • We struggle to end state violence, fight the drug war, challenge the incarceration of youth, women, immigrants, trans and queer people, stop the death penalty and life without parole, end solitary confinement, and free all political prisoners.
  • We will identify points of unity, define intersections with other movements, share difficulties and triumphs, and begin to formulate a national strategy.
