Welcome to
R.I.H.D., Inc.

RIHD 
5TH Mobile Justice Tour


Voter Registration &
Correcting General Assembly mistakes keeping
our communities locked up.


Join R.I.H.D. & Bridging the Gap in VA as we kick off the
5th annual Mobile Justice Tour. We’ll travel throughout
the state to educate and empower communities impacted
by prison and high levels of incarceration.  We all want safer communities, reduce crime, anti-gangs and for those returning back into our community, successful reentry (job, housing and health care), however, in order for this to happen, our lawmakers must not only be smart on crime, but fair and responsible.  Mistakes made must be corrected.
 
We’ll talk about and take onsite direct action in support of 
remedies to mistakes, misapplied and systemic that
includes Fishback, Sentencing Guidelines, Parole Board decisions, Geriatric and 3-Strike Release by our elected officials and at the General Assembly that keep our communities locked up.
 
We’ll also register many of the 200,000+ individuals whose civil rights, including the right to vote was recently restored by Gov. McAuliffe.
 
Join us for a provocative day of speeches and workshops
and opportunities to connect with advocates and
activists led by RIHD’s Lillie Branch-Kennedy and
Richard Walker from Bridging the Gap in Virginia.
