At the Forum the Gubernatorial Candidates will be asked the following questions:
“Tens of thousands of Massachusetts residents have joined together through the Campaign for Jobs NOT Jails to ask state officials to re-direct their attention – and our tax dollars – away from building more prisons and towards intensive job-creation strategies- focused on those communities with the highest rates of poverty and crime.
The goals of the Campaign for Jobs NOT Jails are to:
1) reform the criminal justice system in ways that will make us safer, while reducing our high rate of incarceration;
2) place a moratorium on the construction of any new, additional prison units; and
3) spend $2 billion building schools, roads, dams and bridges instead of prisons, plus an additional $150 million a year on job training and placement, youth jobs and other strategies to address long-term unemployment.
- Will you commit yourself to the goals of the Jobs NOT Jails campaign?
- Will you attend the Jobs NOT Jails Rally on Boston Common at noon on Saturday April 26?”
Let’s hear what they have to say!
