A Day of Protests
August 13th, 2020 - Protesting over 50 deaths due to CDCR's negligence
On the afternoon of August 13th, 2020, families of the incarcerated stood in 100 degree weather in front of the capital building to protest and demand the immediate release of our loved ones before another incarcerated person dies under CDCR’s watch. The people inside those walls are are loved ones – our spouses, our children, our parents, our families. We our their voices and we will not stop until we are heard, until they are free.
The capital was just the start of the day. We caravanned to CDCR headquarters in downtown Sacramento and made lots of news. Sometimes the only way the voices of the incarcerated are heard are through the mouths of others. We must speak up for those that have no voice.
