I know this rally will be held when many are at visitation with their loved ones, but it's important that state leadership see and hear from you in support of sentencing reform.

The number of men and women incarcerated for 10 or more years is estimated to lead to more overcrowding within SCDC, a system already experiencing one too many issues.

Please spread the word and attend if you're able!!!

Default Rally at State House supported bill to help prisoners reduce sentences

Rally at State House supported bill to help prisoners reduce sentences

"COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -St. Patrick's Day was on people's minds, but for one advocacy group, a rally at the State House Saturday afternoon showed what was in their hearts. Focusing on prison reform, the event was put on by the group "HEARTS for Inmates", which aims to provide support to those who are incarcerated.

HEARTS for Inmates stands for help, encourage, aspire, redeem and trust. They connect with other organizations to provide rehabilitation services like drug and alcohol treatment, mental health support, educational programs plus job training and job placement."
