Last week, we kicked off our Incarceration Nation activism event at The Ohio State University. We tabled in our Student Union for a few hours in order to gain petition signatures, spread awareness, and recruit for our chapter. We were happy to send many signature cards from the table to Washington, D.C. It was a great way to introduce students to this important topic, as well as show them what YAL stands for.
We then followed up on this with a meeting devoted to Incarceration Nation and other subtopics that fall under it. We facilitated a great discussion and we were happy to have the leader of our Students for Sensible Drug Policy campus chapter join us.
We look forward to our upcoming social next week and are actively planning our next activism event!
