This year Prisoners’ Justice Day will be accompanied by a new campaign called 10 Days of Abolition, which was created by the newly formed Abolition Coalition which spans many cities in Turtle Island. Our annual vigil will be held on August 10th at 7:30pm (details below), and we will be having events on the days leading up to it. More information will be posted as soon as it is received. You can also order a PJD 2020 t-shirt (details below).
