Evolve Our Prison Farms 
Evolve Our Prison Farms continues to fight for justice. The government is establishing prison dairy operations in Kingston, with milk being sold as infant formula for China. A new petition has been launched, calling on the government to reverse this decision and to prevent the exploitation of prisoners and therapy animals. Sign the petition here: A peaceful protest is being held outside Collins Bay Institution on Prisoners’ Justice Day on August 10 at 5:00 PM. All are welcome. Visit for more information.
