You're Invited to an Equity Agenda on the People's Justice Guarantee

December 13, 2019
Press Release

Dear friend,

As 2019 and my first year in Congress comes to a close, I want to invite you to a community conversation on the future of justice in this country.  Last month, after engaging those most impacted by our criminal INjustice system, I introduced H. Res. 702, The People’s Justice Guarantee - a bold, progressive vision for a criminal legal system that centers the humanity of all people. 

I’m proud to announce that this Sunday in Dorchester, we will be hosting an Equity Agenda event on the People’s Justice Guarantee, and I want to personally invite you to attend. The lived experiences of all people, especially those most impacted by the war on drugs and mass incarceration, is critical in the creation of a truly just society.

Our Equity Agenda events are anchored in communities in the Massachusetts 7th and provide a safe space for us to develop intersectional, enduring solutions together. In partnership, we answer the question: In a world with no barriers, what does equity in the Massachusetts 7th look and feel like?

The People’s Justice Guarantee calls for a People’s Process to create a legal system that makes good on the promise of justice for all, and this workshop will be an opportunity for us to put that process into action. 

The event venue is wheelchair accessible, language interpretation will be provided, and there will be childcare services and food available. For more information and to RSVP to our Equity Agenda, click here: https://bit.ly/2YJvf6x 

I’m so grateful for your partnership and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Sincerely,
