1/24 in #DC: Protest the Private Prison Industry in Columbia Heights

January 18, 2012

Please join other DWN members and allies, along with friends from OccupyDC, to protest the private prison corporations who are driving the mass incarceration of people of color in the United States, including nearly 370,000 immigrants every year.

The action will take place Tuesday January 24 at 5:00pm at the Wells Fargo branch in Tivoli Square (between Park Road and Monroe Street off of 14th in Columbia Heights ). If you are interested in helping with the last stages of planning for the action, please send me an email. There will be a poster making party this weekend at the DWN offices. We are also looking for singers and musicians to help liven things up on what will likely be a cold night, so if you or someone you know has some talent that they would be willing to lend to the occasion, please get in touch!

Tuesday’s action will be one of a dozen simultaneous protests taking place across the country as part of Enlace’s Private Prison Divestment Campaign. For more information on the campaign and the national day of action go to:  http://enlaceintl.org/programs/prison-divestment/.

If you can’t make the protest, please help advertise it!
