On January 31st, Champaign Urbana Citizens for Peace and Justice (CUCPJ) will hold our first community wide strategy meeting for the campaign to stop the construction of a $20 million jail in our county. Though our campaign efforts have yielded considerable success so far, our work is not over. We need your help and support. We invite all CUCPJ members, people from other organizations involved in criminal justice and interested individuals to join us on the 31st at 6 p.m. at the Independent Media Center, 202 N. Broadway, Urbana.
At this meeting we will review our past work, present some proposals for how to move forward and dialog with everyone present to help chart the details of the campaign for 2013.
We hope you will be able to attend. Please bring friends and other people interested in this vital issue. We need to make this a community-wide effort. 2013 is going to be a turning point for the criminal justice system in Champaign County. Our voices must be heard.
People before jail cells! See you on the 31st.
