In November, despite protests from community activists and legal experts, both the Massachusetts House of Representatives and the Massachusetts State Senate passed “3-Strikes” bills that could have disastrous consequences for our communities. As this legislation speeds toward a final vote, it is essential that we educate ourselves about the rampant injustice of our criminal justice system and how 3-Strikes provisions perpetuate and magnify that injustice.

Join us in a panel discussion on the potential repercussions of the 3-Strike law for MA featuring key players in the debate:

Moderated by Ben Thompson, Exec. Director, Criminal Justice Policy Coalition

Panel Featuring:

Hon. Nancy Gertner
Judge (Retired), U.S. District Court Massachusetts
State Representative Liz Malia
D-Jamaica Plain, 11th Suffolk District
Jamarhl Crawford
Occupy the Hood Boston/the Blackstonian

Come learn and share!

1-27 JP Forum

Come to listen, ask questions, and learn how we can take action to stop injustice in our community!

This event is co-sponsored by the Jamaica Plain Forum and The Union of Minority Neighborhoods.
