On Wednesday, March 1, 2017, state legislators in all 50 states and the federal government will meet with crime survivors, murder victim’s families, law enforcement, families of incarcerated men and women, and formerly incarcerated people to discuss the impacts our criminal justice system has had on their lives.
The national day of action is organized by #cut50, a bipartisan initiative founded by Van Jones and Jessica Jackson Sloan, working to make our communities safer while decreasing the prison population. Over 70 grassroots organizations and individuals will participate in the Day of Empathy in order to reach hundreds of lawmakers.
Details on individual state actions coming soon. To partner with us, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
