Build Programs, Not Jails would like to invite community members to show up and support the very first meeting of the newly established Champaign County Racial Justice Task Force!
We are excited with the potential of this task force and urge those of you who can to attend this meeting at the Brookens Administration Center at 6:30pm Thursday, February 11th.
Speakers are already scheduled for public commentary this Thursday. We just want to show via our physical presence that we support the members assigned to the task force and that we intend to follow its progress.
