2 More Lifer Parole Townhall Events: 7/18 Los Angeles and 8/08 Fresno

In May, two amazing townhall events were held in San Francisco and Los Angeles to bring together the loved ones of Term-to-Life prisoners and their allies to work towards changing the system that has kept so many of our people locked up for so long. An article describing the Los Angeles townhall can be found here: “Prisoners’ Rights: An Oxymoron?”
To continue moving forward, two more townhall events are being held on July 18th in Watts and August 8th in Fresno. Please contact CCWP or the contacts listed on the flyer below for more information.
