No More Deaths! – Vigil at Erie Co Holding Center
September 25, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:45 pm
Please join with the WNYPC’s Prisoners’ Rights Taskforce at this regular Wednesday vigil at the Erie County Holding Center (Delaware & Church). It will be bigger than usual as there’s been yet another death – reportedly a suicide – at the Alden Facility also under the auspices of Sheriff Howard’s Dept. Furthermore, as reported by the Buffalo News on Sunday 9/22/19 (front page), dear brother Connell Burrell died due (about a month ago) due to medical malpractice. Sheriff Howard is (yet another) elected official who needs to be impeached. Come ahead – All are welcome. Grieving families will be joining us, and people with related lived experience are more than welcome! Please, too, bring signs. Cosponsored by Brothers Doing Better, Buffalo AntiRacism Coalition (BARC), Buffalo/WNY #HALTsolitary, Prisoners Are People Too, and more in process.
