Sunday: Community Control for Rikers

Last Saturday we had an amazing show of force on a rainy day at Rikers Island! We denounced the proposed Enhanced Supervision Housing Unit (E.S.H.U) in addition to our demands for an end to youth incarceration, incarceration of mentally ill people, and solitary confinement.

On Sunday of this coming weekend, we will have the launch meeting for a Rikers Island Community Review Board. This project will seek to create community power over NYC jails and build a structure to autonomously process grievances from incarcerated people and their loved ones.

In light of the call for the March of Millions on Saturday, we will hold the meeting on Sunday, December 14, 4:00pm- 6:00pm
at Project Reach, 39 Eldridge St (4th Floor) in Manhattan.

Please take a moment to RSVP on Facebook and Invite Friends! Everyone is welcome, and there will be more opportunities to get involved if you cannot make it on Sunday.

Love and solidarity,

Rikers Action Commmittee
