Close Rikers canvassing in East Harlem
The city has finally committed to close Rikers, but its prosecutors still aren't taking meaningful steps to bring down our enormous jail population. Democratic Socialists of America is canvassing every weekend to foster community awareness around the damage mass incarceration does to our communities, and to petition for immediate bail reform and other efforts to keep our communities out of jail and in safe homes. Come join us. We'll provide a brief training (and this is an easy canvass that usually leads to a lot of interesting conversations).
