FUEGO has joined multiple organizations across the Shenandoah Valley to oppose the Middle River Regional Jail expansion plans. Together we launched a petition that now has more than 2000 signatures. if you would like to support this cause, add your name and invite others to join as well. The petition indicates three important steps that our community is taking to prevent, reduce, and eliminate incarceration levels. Check it out!
1. No Jail Expansion
2. Reduce Incarceration
3. Fund Community-based Programs (Not jail-based)
"We, as citizens of Rockingham and Augusta Counties and the cities of Harrisonburg, Staunton and Waynesboro, oppose spending millions to build more jail space at Middle River Regional Jail and propose that these dollars be invested in creating community based programs and policies proven to reduce incarceration."
