READING, Pa. -

A group walking all the way from Philadelphia to Harrisburg made a stop in Reading.

Members of "Decarcerate PA" were at Hopewell Mennonite Church for a panel discussion Wednesday night.

The group is using the more than 100 mile trip to call on lawmakers to stop building new prisons.

Instead they say more money should be invested in communities through education, social services and health care.

They'll make it to Harrisburg on June 3rd.
