Activists March Against Prison

Activists and elected officials marched the three miles from the Suffolk County House of Corrections to the Massachusetts State House Monday morning in support of a moratorium on construction of a new women’s prison in Norfolk.

As a finale to seven days of similar marches done by the group, more than 100 people gathered on the State House steps, where those impacted by incarceration and their local representatives spoke to the need for restorative justice rather than more punitive institutions.
