Over 30 GBIO leaders attend statehouse rally as Lawmakers call for
broader criminal justice reforms.

GBIO leaders have organized 7 In-District Meetings with 23 MA State Senators and Representatives to build support for 4 key reforms to the criminal justice system: repealing mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses, pretrial and bail reform, reducing/eliminating fees and fines, and shortening length of time spent in solitary confinement. 50 GBIO leaders stepped up to organize teams, invite and build relationships with these legislators, invite congregants and constituents, and run great actions. GBIO now plans on taking that work to the rest of the state through denominational allies.
