In two minutes you will find out how the Colorado State Prison system is bypassing citizens rights by denying them due process which is guaranteed under the U.S Constitution. Please spread the word! Being held illegally is slavery, period! Watch our media section
Colorado state prosecutors have been taking short cuts in order to pack the prisons with inmates by denying civil rights, handing out lengthy sentences, and bypassing state & national laws in order to maximize their conviction rates.
We want and demand that these citizens are realeased as they have been denied their civil rights and are being held illegally.
Anyone being held illegally is considered to be a slave according to the U.S Constitution.
We will push communities to become aware and fully understand the issue of slavery is still relevant in this modern day.
We will confront and challenge the racial bias in our laws, policing practices, prosecutorial discretion, adjudication and sentencing.
We will demand that criminal convictions will no longer be used to deny inmates their civil rights.
We will update this section when our victories start to pour in... believe!

"To help free the wrongfully accused black men in Colorado "
"Abolish modern day slavery"
"Because, "inequality/injustice anywhere is a threat to equality/justice everywhere.""
"I have been incarcerated and currently communicate with over 40 people whom are currently incarcerated and know of the conditions of confinement."
"This is an obvious and outrageous injustice!!! This young man should be set free and the powers-that-be in Colorado need to answer and atone for this!"
"Because im a black male and all the slavery business has really hurt society. Leaves me wondering if its not changed now when will it ever change. Just sucks that this is a cycle thats seemed to be getting passed down and continued in new ways."
"As an American History teacher I stand by the constitution and what it stood for when the Americans broke free from Britain and its king. I believe the legal system needs to follow and apply it not only for certain individuals but for all, and in this case there are missing pieces and unfortunately I don't see those rights happening for this young man."
"Too many black men are wrongly convicted and herded into prisons like animals. "
