5th Annual Va. Prison Justice Rally 1 pm, Sat., Jan. 22, 2022, Richmond

This annual rally, sponsored by the Virginia Prison Justice Network, is Virginia’s largest gathering supporting the human rights of prisoners. As the General Assembly meets to vote on bills affecting the lives of our communities, we want the state’s legislators to know that addressing the injustices in Virginia’s legal and prison systems must be a priority. No matter who is in the governor’s mansion, we the people can affect change if we come out in massive numbers and DEMAND it!

  1. IMPORTANT NOTICE! The rally site has been changed from Capitol Square to Monroe Park, 620 W. Main St., Richmond, VA 23220. This will give us more control over the rally, including being aboe to hold it from 1-2:30 pm instead of just 1-2. Please visit the Facebook event page – https://www.facebook.com/events/316468037007693. Mark yourself “Going,” invite your friends and share the page. It will really help to build the event. Thanks! – Phil Wilayto, for the Jan. 22 Organizing Committee
