SURJ General Meeting

June 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

At Gonzalez-Soto Branch of the Library, 280 Porter Ave, near Prospect and D’Youville College. This month’s SURJ (Showing up for Racial Justice) general meeting will focus on Erie County’s prisons, and in particular the downtown Holding Center, where at least 24 people have died. We will specifically focus on a couple of stories of people who have recently been incarcerated there. At least one of them will be joining us in person. This will be an opportunity for us to learn about the county’s abysmal and racist carceral policies, and find out how to get more involved in the struggle against their catastrophic presence in our community.
