Dear GFMBC Family,
Last week was incredible! On the day before Christmas Eve, over 100 people came out to support reform of our overly harsh drug laws. So many ISAIAH leaders and others gave very powerful testimony. (See news clips below).
Now we are just minutes away from the final vote at the Sentencing Commission. No matter which way it goes, we have a lot of work to do to prevent prison expansion, stop CCA, pass Juvenile Justice Reform and end Mass Incarceration!
Please come to the next Justice Reform Team Leadership Meeting
Thursday January 7, 6:30-8:30pm
Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 285 N. Dale Street, St. Paul MN
We hope to see you there! (and Happy New Year!)
Toya, Catalina & Lars
PS: Check out these news Clips about the Sentencing Reform Public Hearing last week
AP (pulled from Crookston Daily Times, but also ran in dozens of other papers): Panel hears support, concern for easing drug-crime sentences in Minnesota
