Walk to Stop New Prison Construction in Massachusetts

Sept. 7-13, 2021

On September 7, 2021, activists from the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls, Families for Justice as Healing, Building Up People Not Prisons, and Massachusetts Peace Action will commence a walk across Massachusetts, from Springfield to Boston, calling to end the incarceration of women and girls and to stop new prison construction in the commonwealth of Massachusetts.You are invited to join us on this walk. We walk to inspire a groundswell of support for a bill in the State House and Senate that will establish a five-year moratorium on jail and prison construction. The bill addresses the Commonwealth’s huge investment in prisons, jails, regional lockups, and other such facilities by fully pausing new construction and planning. We will share up-to-date information on the bills.  Imagine what we can create together if we pause jail and prison construction and reinvest tens of millions of dollars in community-led solutions!
