Stop BHOD Hits City Hall Friday

From the CHB Inbox comes word of a stop BHOD rally this Friday at City Hall:

On March 20th, the Department of Corrections will hold a budget hearing which will cover their plans to spend $1.2 billion on building new jails in the Bronx and Brooklyn. In response, Stop BHOD and Communities in Unity will join forces with community groups and elected officials in front of City Hall to send a unified message to the City that New Yorkers will not support wasteful spending on unnecessary jails at a moment of serious financial crisis. We hope you will join us Friday, March 20th at 11:30 AM for this important rally to stop the City from wasting $1.2B of our taxpayer money on jails we don’t need.

We are expecting a good turnout on Friday, but we would like to encourage anyone who missed our rally in January to come out and support our campaign. Friday’s event will also be a good opportunity for anyone who is interested in learning more about this issue to come and hear from a host of speakers who support smart fiscal and corrections policy. We expect to hear from Council Members David Yassky and Letitia James, and are also hopeful that Comptroller Thompson will speak as well. We are also very excited to have speakers from our Bronx partner Communities in Unity, who we have partnered with in solidarity against the City’s plans for a new Bronx jail in Hunts Point.

Over the next few months, the mayor and City Council will decide how to spend the $1.2 billion slated for new jails. Will it go to unnecessary jails? Or will it go to schools, housing and firehouses? You can help decide–but time is running out.

Come out on Friday March 20th and join us in telling the City that more jails are not the answer.

Fight for Rehabilitation, not incarceration!
