MLC Benefit at Everybody Hits
Thank you to everyone who came out to Everybody Hits for the Mass Liberation Campaign Benefit! w/ Sammus, Pinkwash, Soul Glo, and Likes. Your generosity helped us raise over 1000.00 dollars! It was an amazing evening with great artists and delicious donuts. Thanks again to all of the bands and Dottie’s Donuts.
To get involved with the Mass Liberation Taskforce head here and sign-up! The MLC is also currently working with other coalitions dedicated to ending mass incarceration (like CADBI and the HRC) to urge people to call Governor Wolf to demand that he meet with prisoners' families and cancel the harmful Department of Corrections policies announced in September. These policies involve restricting and censoring inmate access to books, increasing surveillance of inmates' mail, and introducing restrictive visiting policies that violate the American Disabilities Act.
Reclaim Philadelphia’s Mass Liberation Campaign (MLC) mobilizes formerly incarcerated citizens and those directly affected by incarceration to be leaders in the fight to end mass incarceration, with a vision of building issue-based campaigns that target unjust policing and carceral practices in Philadelphia. MLC believes that in order to fight mass incarceration, power must be returned to the people who have been stripped of it by systematic racism and violence. This base will not only develop into leaders within the movement but recruit, empower, and educate others to join the fight in ending the exploitation, oppression, and disenfranchisement of black and brown Philadelphians.
Thank you to Reclaim Philadelphia Communications member Jason Lozada for the great photos.
