Year after year, Governor Corbett cuts funds from education, healthcare, environmental protection, and social services. Yet he continues to spend millions on locking people up.
This is why we will march in Pittsburgh to demand a People's Budget, Not a Prison Budget, echoing the message from across the state where on May 25th the March for A People's Budget will begin in Philadelphia, to land in Harrisburg on June 3rd to demand that legislators invest in communities, not prisons.
10:00 am - 1:00 pm - Sister March begins - A 6-mile march across Pittsburgh, making stops at offices of PA legislators to demand that the new budget reflects the people's interest for re-investment in our communities and an end to prison expansion! The march will also make stops at the offices of companies invested in increasing criminalization of our communities. March will end at the Community Day BBQ -- join for the whole march, or join at any point along the route! Contact us, or see website for more details!
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm - Community Day BBQ - Join us at Mellon Park in East Liberty across from Bakery Square where we will join together to celebrate and give voice to the things that we want in our communities, the things that make us safe, healthy, and secure, unlike mass incarceration. Food, Speakers, Activities for kids! Families encouraged to come!
