It is going to take all of us to make an impact this session. The prison building momentum is gaining force. We MUST convince the Legislature that they first must decide who actually should be in prison. They must fund community programs and release low level lawbreakers into community programs that directly address their pathways to incarceration. WE CAN DO THIS, HOWEVER, MANY, MANY VOICES MUST BE RAISED ABOVE THE DIN OF THE PROFITEERS SALIVATING AT THE $1 BILLION PROPOSAL.
Mahalo for caring about justice and all our people caught in its web.
Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
