STOP BUILDING NEW CAGES, WE WANT SCHOOL AND LIVING WAGES
Prison Abolition Workshop
Thursday 2/13 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
GIAC, 301. W. Court Street (Downtown Ithaca)
The move to close prisons in New York has come alongside the push to expand county jails across the state. Within this statewide shift, Tompkins has been one of few counties actively resisting their local jail expansion.
In our attempt to understand what exactly is going on in our state, we will work with Jack Norton, a geographer who studies prison closures in Upstate New York. Learning about the history and geography of mass incarceration in New York will help us better understand our current struggle. Join us in work-shopping abolitionist organizing in Ithaca as we brainstorm messaging for our campaign to stop the Tompkins County Jail expansion, effective tactics, and next steps.

Do you agree that Tompkins County should invest in schools, social services, infrastructure, and other things that help people, instead of in locking people up in prisons? Then please make your voice heard! Sign this petition asking the 2014 Tompkins County Legislators to pass a resolution agreeing to a 1-year moratorium on Tompkins-County jail expansion decision-making. Please pass this on. Thank you!
