ECHC Vigil & Protest
October 16, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Vigil and protest the Sheriff’s Dept at the Erie County Holding Center (ECHC) on Wednesday at 4-6pm (in front of the ECHC, on Delaware between Church & Eagle). There was yet another death at the ECHC – 4 under the Sheriff’s watch in 2 1/2 months. Outrageous and heartbreaking. Please bring signs – and determination for real change to systemic violence and abysmal neglect! Organized by the WNYPC; Cosponsored by Voice Buffalo, Brothers Doing Better, Prisoners Are People Too, Buffalo AntiRacism Coalition (BARC), Black Love Resists in the Rust, SURJ, and more. Also please call Gov Cuomo at (518) 474-8390 to urge him to remove Sheriff Howard as he clearly is not up to the job.
