*** Originally posted October, 2016 *** There are over 5000 people serving Life Without Parole sentences in Pennsylvania. In PA, ‘life’ means your entire life, which is why many instead call it Death By Incarceration. This harsh sentencing does not improve public safety and disproportionately impacts poor people and people of color. We believe that denying people the right to transformation and redemption is an affront to everyone’s humanity. Join the Coalition to Abolish Death By Incarceration (CADBI) and our allies from across the state as we converge at the state capitol to ask our legislators to end Death By Incarceration in Pennsylvania. Transportation will be provided from Philadelphia, and possibly other areas as well. More details will be announced soon, so check out http://decarceratepa.info/dayofaction, call 267-606-0324 or email CADBIphilly@gmail.com to find out how to sign up and get involved!
