  1. THIS WILL BE A GREAT EVENT I CANT WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE IN PERSON.. OUR FIGHTS HAVE ALL BEEN CONCENTRATED INTO ONE CAMPAIGN DEDICATED TO CHANGE, IT WILL GIVE US ALL A FACE BEHIND THE HEARTS WE ALL POSSES

  2. Mark Levine says:

    I strongly support ongoing efforts to end the grievous injustice of prolonged solitary confinement, which violates our Constitution and has been openly and rightly criticized by the United Nations official monitor ( I forget the precise title of his position) on human rights. I believe this is a vital element in the fight to end mass incarceration in this country.

  3. THANK YOU MARK ..YOU ARE SO RIGHT A SOCIETY CAN TRULY BE JUDGED BY HOW THEY TREAT THEIR INCARCERATED. WHEN IT COMES TO SOLITARY CONFINEMENT I RECENTLY SEEN A PERFECTLY WORKING EXAMPLE OF ITS PRINCIPLES, WHILE AT A HOCKEY GAME I SEEN A FIGHT HAPPEN AND THE TOOK THE AGGRESSOR AND PLACED HIM IN THIS LITTLE BOX THEN AFTER A-WHILE THEY JUST LET HIM OUT AND HE IMMEDIATELY WENT BACK TO FIGHTING AGAIN ., WITH NO CORRECTIVE MEASURES IMPLEMENTED PEOPLE ARE JUST BEING CONTAINED NOT CORRECTED.
