Senator Edward Markey (D-MA) and Democratic primary challenger Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-M), participated in separate virtual town hall forums on the U.S. justice system. The two U.S. Senate candidates fielded questions from justice reform activists, formerly incarcerated people and the public. Both candidates talked about their support to end solitary confinement, decriminalization of sex work, and restoration of voting rights for Massachusetts inmates.

The virtual forum was presented by Suffolk University, the Justice Reform Coalition, the WGBH Forum Network, Lowell University and involved a group of Massachusetts-based advocacy organizations including Black & Pink Boston, Citizens for Juvenile Justice, The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls and Sisters Unchained. It was the first organized debate by formerly incarcerated people in Massachusetts. close
