SUPPORT THIS ISSUE: Defeat Pennsylvania Senate Bill 508 – signed by Governor Tom Corbett – which prohibits prisoners and those formerly incarcerated from speaking publicly. The law targets journalists, non-profits and individuals who aid prisoners in communicating to the outside world.
This law is designed to stop the commentaries of Mumia Abu Jamal from being recorded and aired to the outside world. Protect the First Amendment right to free speech.
