Deeper Than Water

The water at MCI Norfolk and other MA prisons is toxic, as those with loved ones and who have been imprisoned there know too well. The Boston Globe broke the story in a big way on June 17th.

Shortly thereafter, the #DeeperThanWater coalition formed.

Join us Monday, September 18 at 7 pm to learn about the campaign and begin taking action!
– Photo petitions
– Write a prisoner
– Donate money to buy water at canteen

We are a multi-generational, multiracial, formerly and currently incarcerated, allies, and abolitionists. We aim to:
– uplift the voices of prisoners and former prisoners, telling the story of incarceration in the US through the lens of water injustice
– ensure all prisoners in MA have immediate access to free, clean, safe, healthy, and sufficient water
– hold the state of MA accountable to rectifying the issues at MCI Norfolk and other effected prisons

No admission cost, but we will pass the hat to fund our work.
