Please join NCJA and Veterans for Peace at Nassau County Correctional Center on Veterans Day!
We will gather and demonstrate at the East Meadow facility to let incarcerated veterans know they are not forgotten, and to spread the message that incarcerated vets are being harmed by the jails lack of mental healthcare and other services. This reality was tragically driven home in 2012 when former Marine who served in Iraq Bartholomew Ryan committed suicide on the jail’s watch.
Nationwide, veterans make up 8% of those incarcerated in jails and prisons. These former servicemen and women deserve to be seen and cared for, not made invisible and thrown away.
Come raise your voices with us to demand better treatment of incarcerated veterans and all others held behind bars.
Prisoners are people too, and all people are intrinsically valuable!
