“The Massachusetts and the Carceral State Conference was a wonderful collaboration of members of the Criminal Justice Policy Coalition, Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, Coalition for Effective Public Safety, and the Massachusetts branch of the National Lawyers Guild. We engaged more than 100 activists the first day, sponsored a dance performance on mass incarceration the first evening, which was well attended by many not usually at these events, and we engaged almost 250 enthused participants the second day in workshops and discussion. It was a step toward building a united front on criminal justice in Massachusetts and because of its success, we look forward to partnering with more organizations and continuing to develop more events in the future.”
Never give up
No matter what is happening
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up.
