Three Strikes Proposal Deliberation, Feb. 28

On Tuesday, February 28, Boston City Council will be deliberating the proposed "Three Strikes Bill." Nearly 30 states have some sort of habitual offender law, which imposes life sentences to people convicted of two or more serious criminal offenses. Opponents of Massachusetts’ three strikes bill include the Massachusetts Legislative Black and Latino Caucus in the Massachusetts House, as well as the Nation of Islam, the NAACP, The Center for Church and Prison; Boston Workers Alliance, Boston’s Citywide Outreach Ministries, the Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers, and many others. The deliberation will take place at 3:30 p.m. in the Christopher A. Iannella Chamber on the fifth floor of Boston City Hall. For more information, contact Kenneth Yarborough at 617.635.3131.
