Prisoners Legal Services’ Racial Equity in Corrections Initiative (REICI) advocates for equity and the humane treatment of Black and Brown incarcerated community members. This year, REICI is supporting legislation — “An Act creating an independent correctional oversight office to facilitate the recommendations of the Special Legislative Commission on Structural Racism in Correctional Facilities of the Commonwealth” — that would help dismantle structural racism in the Massachusetts Department of Corrections.

Speakers will include LaToya Whiteside, senior attorney and director, REICI; Mac Hudson, REICI community liaison; State Sen. Liz Miranda, who represents the Second Suffolk District; and Sen. Jamie Eldridge, who represents the Middlesex and Worcester District.
