For this month’s organizing meeting we are inviting Delaware County Council candidates to join us for a focused conversation on prison reform.
County Council plays a key role in prison oversight and accountability. We look forward to getting to know our wonderful candidates, and learning about the expertise and perspectives they each bring. We’ll also share a little about DelcoCPR’s work and have time to mingle at the end. All are welcome!
We’re taking a break from our regular monthly meeting in November and gearing back up in December!
Join us on Thursday 12/20 for community building, strategy, and updates about all of the incredible organizing going on around deprivatizing George W. Hill.
Find out more about all of the team members who have been sharing at the recent Prison Board and County Council meetings. Thank you to all who have been speaking out and sharing their stories!
Let's continue the momentum from our Public Hearing!
Join us for the next Delco CPR organizing meeting at Trinity Episcopal Church in Swarthmore. Press coverage has thankfully brought attention to this issue and connected us with more people who have experiences to share from George Hill, and who are planning to attend this meeting.
We'll hear stories, get to know one another, and strategize about how to keep the pressure on County Council and the Prison Board and respond to the Phoenix Report (due by the end of October).
Join us for a Public Hearing on Delaware County's prison!
George W. Hill Correctional Facility is the only private prison in all of Pennsylvania.
Show County Council and the Prison Board that this issue is important!
Program will include:
Exepriences from people formerly incarcerated at George Hill
Response to an economic report about this prison's management (funded by County Council)
Invited comments from County Council / Prison Board members

Let's stand up for our brothers and sisters behind bars!
