Join the Coalition to Abolish Death By Incarceration for our third annual day of action in Harrisburg! This year, come make your voice heard during a “People’s Senate Vote” to demonstrate popular support to end Death By Incarceration – also known as Life Without Parole – across Pennsylvania. This rally will help advance two bills – Senate Bill 942 and House Bill 135 – that would make those serving life sentences in Pennsylvania eligible for parole after 15 years.

On October 2 at 11:30am, CADBI members and supporters will descend on the Capitol Rotunda with the message that healing and compassion can rebuild our communities. We will stage a mock senate vote with constituents from different districts, and take our message directly to Governor Wolf to ask him to take a stand in favor of second chances.

We’re hoping that this year will be the biggest action yet, and we need your help! Please spread the word!

FREE BUSES from Philadelphia, and possibly other locations as well! Register for the action and reserve your seat on the bus here: https://goo.gl/forms/skLpSo3M9b8EDx1C3 or register by phone at 267-606-0324.
