Join the movement against solitary confinement led by prisoners inside!

The purpose of this afternoon event is to educate the community about California's Security Housing Unit prisons and the struggle prisoners have waged to end their torturous conditions.

• Hear about life inside CA Supermax prisons and why prisoners are resuming their hunger strike on July 8th
• Short film screening & discussion
• Get informed about the July 13th mobilization to Corcoran State Prison -AND- sign up to join the protest via carpool or caravan
• Sign-making for July 13th so if you can't physically be there, Sin Barras & company will bring your message with us!
