Advocates Rally & Sing Against ‘Death by Incarceration’
House Bill 2135 would end Life Without Parole
HARRISBURG, PA -- On Tuesday October 18th, over 200 people, led by the Coalition to Abolish Death by Incarceration (CADBI), will gather at the State Capitol to demand that all imprisoned people in Pennsylvania have a meaningful opportunity for parole.
Members of the West Philadelphia-based Human Rights Coalition joined with the Coalition to Abolish Death by Incarceration for what was dubbed a Mother’s Day rally that called for the restoration of communities and juvenile sentencing reforms.
The May 6 rally was scheduled to take place outside City Hall but inclement weather forced the event to be held inside the Arch Street Methodist Church, 55 N. Broad St.
