Hello Representative Welch,

My name is Syron Smith and I am writing you regarding HB2265, please do not support anything that increases any incarceration, we have to invest more in prevention and resources and less in enforcement. Illinois prison system has over 64% African Americans locked up, are you okay with that?

[Note:] Thomas Prison was sold to the federal government after the people of Pontiac did not want to lose 570 jobs in their town so they fought against closing it and won on March 2009.

National Block Club University is a 5,870 position network, designed to combat violence across 167 of America’s most dangerous neighborhoods using $1.00 a month to accomplish it.
