Join the Boston Workers Alliance on Thursday, May 22 for the final leg of the Walk to Freedom. Beginning on May 18, dozens from Ex-prisoners and Prisoners Organizing for Community Advancement (EPOCA) will begin a five day walk from Worcester to Boston to raise momentum for CORI reform.

Meet on May 22 at Bunker Hill Community College to welcome the walkers and to add force in the final leg to the State House.

May 22 Day of Action activities:

10:00 a.m. - Gather at Bunker Hill Community College
11:00 a.m. - Begin March to the State House
2:00 p.m. - Arrive and Rally on the State House Steps

Even after the Governor's Executive Order on the CORI, the criminal record system continues to sabotage our communities. Unemployment is high and we are barely hanging on. Help grow the movement for CORI reform. The time for change is now!
