In this report, we call for the elimination of the use of electronic monitoring for people on parole. When people have done their time, they should be cut loose, not made to jump through more hoops and be shackled with more devices, punitive rules and threats of re-incarceration.
Kicking off on October 2, Center for Media Justice, Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center, and other campaign partners will share social media content, stories, and creative each day centered on the 6 pillars from the #NoMoreShackles report.
Then, on October 4 at 1pm EST/10am PST, join @mediajustice for the #NoMoreShackles Twitter chat to discuss our report findings, how electronic monitoring for people on parole negatively impacts our homes, neighborhoods and communities and how we can come together to eliminate this technology.
