Ending Mass Incarceration and School-to-Prison Pipeline


2015 Conference on Ending Mass Incarceration and the School-to-Prison Pipeline.

Theme:”Mass Educate Don’t Mass Incarcerate!”

September 10-12,  Congregation Lion of Judah Church, 68 Northampton Street, Boston

United States:

  • 5% of the world’s population but 25% of the world’s incarcerated population.
  • Over 7.2 million in jails, prisons, on probation, on parole or under some form of correctional supervision.
  • Over 2.2 million incarcerated.
  • Over 20 million with criminal records hindered from employment, housing, voting rights, student loans for education, and other basic rights as citizens of the United States.

SJC Chief Justice Ralph Gants Urges Elimination of Mandatory Minimums Sentences for Drug Crimes:

“I’m convinced mandatory minimum sentences on drug cases will be abolished. The only question is when,” Gants said. “Because doing so makes fiscal sense, justice sense, policy sense and common sense, and ultimately, good sense will prevail.”
Attorney Gen. Eric Holder: Seeks to Cut Mandatory Drug Sentences: “Too many Americans go to too many prisons for far too long, and for no truly good law enforcement reason,” Holder told the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates in San Francisco.

  • Attention Everyone: I am Morgana Abony,i live in Florida USA, I am using this medium to inform the general public about how my life got transformed I was in search of a business loan of $200,000.00USD as I was running out of money for my business and money to pay bills because recently i got scammed out of $3,000USD and i said to myself that i will never apply for a loan on the internet again, little did i know that a lender like Mr Warren Buffett could still be found on the internet. Until a Friend of mine introduced me to Warren Buffett Loan Company. At first I told her I was not interested in any loan deal anymore then she assured me that the company is a genuine one, though i never believed her, I made a trial and I am glad i did, I was granted a loan of $200,000.00USD by this great Company. My advice to anyone who requires a genuine, legit loan company or any financial assistance and can be reliable, trusted and capable of paying back at the due time of the funds to contact him via:(warrenbuffettloanfirm01@gmail.com)and you will never regret it.I also did what i did because i have heard about Mr Warren Buffet online that he is a wealthy man too,So that was where my trust started to develop,Am so happy that i own my business of my own,Thank you all for listening to my testimony,Am also waiting to hear yours, God Bless Mr Warren Buffet Forever
