Taking the Campaign to County Council

DelcoCPR leader Kabeera M. Weissman spoke directly to Delaware County Council at the weekly meeting on February 27, 2018. 

In general, if every other county in Pennsylvania can deal with their county jails and oversight and operate and manage them effectively, why can’t this county?”
— Kabeera M. Weissman

After the meeting, Kabeera spoke with Council Chairman John McBlain who said that the Delaware County Board of Prison Inspectors would have to solicit a request for proposal from service providers in order to consider changing the management of the prison.
