Read, Write, Resist event in Phoenix

Please consider attending this meeting and possibly asking questions about life on the registry.

Introducing READ, WRITE, RESIST, a Changing Hands Bookstore / ACLU of Arizona partnership.

This President’s Day, join the ACLU of Arizona at Changing Hands Bookstore in Phoenix to discuss the ACLU’s unprecedented, multi-year effort to reduce the U.S. jail and prison population by 50 percent and combat racial disparities in the criminal justice system. We’ll also launch our READ, WRITE, RESIST tees, totes, and stickers. A portion of proceeds will benefit ACLU-AZ!

7 – 9 pm at Changing Hands bookstore, 300 West Camelback Rd.

ABOUT THE EVENT

We’ll screen the ACLU’s mini documentary series highlighting three stories of people whose experiences show the toll an abusive and unjust criminal system takes on individuals, families, and communities. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on criminal justice in Arizona.

Arizona has one of the highest imprisonment rates in the nation. Please join us on Monday, February 19, to learn more about how YOU can join the fight to reform our system of mass incarceration.

    was convicted of sam 2 in 2002 in alaska. i am 74 years old and have no other criminal history. i am registered as level 1 in az. and recently was advised i am now on the public registry. i was previously signed on with a web site called mesa east neighbors and when my notification changed they blocked me from the site. i also feel that the yearly drivers license renewal is unfair. my sentence was 3.5 years imprisonment and 12 yrs suspended. i served my time and feel that i should not be discriminated against in matters such as where i can reside, where i can travel, my civil liberties. and so on. i support your cause but am on a fixed income so cannot donate at this time but if mt financial situation changes you can expect my monetary support. thanks for helping.
