Dare Behind the Walls holds rally to call attention to ACI conditions
CRANSTON, R.I. (WLNE)- The organization, Dare Behind the Walls, held a rally today in Cranston to call attention to the conditions prisons are under in the ACI.
ABC6 News Crews attended the rally which was supported by about twenty people.
They are hoping to gain public support and highlight these wishes:
- End 23-hour lockdowns where people are confined to their cells
- More PPE to staff and inmates
- Address mold issues in the facility
- Allow mental health workers to come into the ACI for the inmates
- Restart educational programs and services that have stopped due to COVID
- Create a line of communication for inmate’s filed grievances to reach those in authority
- Expedite parole hearings
Cars also drove around the ACI honking their horns to show supported to those incarcerated.
