Stand in Solidarity with Prisoners Striking for Human Rights

A multi-state prison strike has been organized to address a number of prison injustices, such as toxic work conditions, extreme heat, insufficient access to healthcare and contaminated drinking/bathing water. The strike begins on the 45th anniversary of the 1971 Attica uprising. Related Petitions:
> Summer Heat Serves Texas Prisoners an Early Death Sentence
> Contaminated Water Causes Cancer in Prison
> Prisoners Forced to Work in Toxic, Hazardous Conditions
> End Legal Slavery in U.S. Prisons
