On the day following the 41st anniversary of the Attica massacre of courageous prisoners rising up against intolerable oppression we call for a major event at Riverside Church, precisely where a very powerful and moving commemoration of that uprising took place last year.
THIS YEAR WE WILL BE CALLING FOR THE CLOSING OF ATTICA AND THE ENDING OF SOLITARY CONFINEMENT!
