This annual rally, sponsored by the Virginia Prison Justice Network, is Virginia’s largest gathering supporting the human rights of prisoners. As the General Assembly meets to vote on bills affecting the lives of our communities, we want the state’s legislators to know that addressing the injustices in Virginia’s legal and prison systems must be a priority. No matter who is in the governor’s mansion, we the people can effect change if we come out in massive numbers and DEMAND it!
YOU CAN HELP by spreading the word and making plans to join us at the rally!
MORE INFORMATION will be posted as it becomes available. (See contact information below.)
