No Thanks, We Don't Want Your New Wayne County Jail

Date: 
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 - 8:00am to 12:00pm

Many of us want to go into hiding on a holiday that celebrates genocide. Instead, join us in educating people at the Thanksgiving Day parade about a institution that enforces the rawest form of structural violence; the prison-industrial complex. From our table near Central United Methodist Church, we'll be sharing hot cocoa, passing out prison abolition literature, and making some noise.
