The Millions for Prisoners March seeks to raise awareness around the language in the 13th amendment that permits the legal enslavement of incarcerated individuals. Join us in raising some money to help get Boston activists to D.C. and demand an end to slavery within the prison industrial complex. All proceeds from the event will go directly to Black Lives Matter Boston to subsidize the cost of transportation to the Action in D.C. Can’t make the event but still want to donate? Check out BLM’s youcaring link below and feel free to give generously.
