A Jail Sentence Shouldn’t be a Death Sentence
Too many have died. Far too many have been abused. Come join us. Remember those we have lost. End Mass Incarceration. Plan for a more just Broome County.
Vigil and Call to Action
Saturday January 28th, 2pm
Outside Broome County Office Building
In 2001 Alvin Rios died of medical neglect in Broome County Jail—which came to light only after a state investigation and the county lost a lawsuit. In 2015, Salladin Barton died due to medical maltreatment; another lawsuit is in progress. Since then 3 more deaths, hidden by the County Jail, have been discovered. Accounts of abuse and maltreatment abound for the hundreds of innocent persons who linger in the jail. Come and join JUST and many community organizations to remember those lost and unjustly suffering—and plan for justice.
