Tell PA's next Governor: Invest in education, not incarceration!

On October 1st, Governor Tom Corbett and Gubernatorial hopeful Tom Wolf will be in Philadelphia for a debate.

During his time as Governor, Corbett has spent $685 million to expand Pennsylvania's prison system and has failed to deliver meaningful reform to bring people home from prison. Corbett has cut massive amounts of funding from public education and public services. He has cut General Assistance, put forward an inadequate Medicaid proposal, and advanced failed policies that harm young people, workers, incarcerated people, and people living with HIV and AIDS.

Can Wolf do better? There are over 51,000 people in prison in Pennsylvania, and communities across the state have been devastated by the impacts of mass incarceration. Yet Wolf has said very little about what he plans to do to stop prison expansion and bring people home.
