It’s been half of a century since a war was declared on the American people, leading to the destabilization of families across the country and our era of mass incarceration.
Dream Corps JUSTICE and our allies, such as Weldon Angelos, are shining a light on the stories of those who were caught in this wave of systemic, racist legislation, over-policing of communities of color, and violence to rectify old wrongs and pass bills to ensure that history doesn’t repeat itself.
On Thursday, June 17th at 4pm PT/5pm MT/6pm CT/7pm ET we rallied for a commemorative event you will not soon forget. This event was a collaboration between Dream Corps JUSTICE and MISSION [GREEN], and was sponsored by the Last Prisoner Project.
Together, let’s #EndTheWarOnDrugs.
Tell your Senators: Support the EQUAL Act!
Unjust and unscientific sentencing disparities between crack and powder cocaine have contributed to the explosion of mass incarceration and have disproportionately impacted marginalized communities.
The “Eliminating a Quantifiably Unjust Application of the Law” (EQUAL) Act would simply create 1:1 penalties for crack and powder cocaine, bringing thousands home from prison, and shortening future sentences.
Sign this petition to urge your senator to support the EQUAL Act and eliminate this sentencing disparity for good!
Take action for federal cannabis clemency now! It’s Time to Heal
The Last Prisoner Project, in partnership with a coalition of other activists, celebrities, and public figures, is calling on President Biden to continue to act on broad-based criminal justice and drug policy reform by granting clemency to then tens of thousands of individuals currently incarcerated due to — or otherwise unduly burdened by — federal cannabis-related convictions.
