#NoAddressInThePress – Parliamentary Petition lodged
Families Outside is currently campaigning to end the practice of printing the address of somebody who has been sentenced in Court.
At the last meeting of the Scottish Parliament’s Cross Party Group on Families affected by Imprisonment a presentation was delivered on the campaign. At this meeting the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Humza Yousaf MSP, pledged his support for the aims of the campaign and welcomed the submission of a petition to the Parliament’s Public Petition’s Committee to explore legislative and other changes to help families affected by imprisonment.
We have now lodged a petition to the Scottish Parliament’s Public Petitions Committee. We would appreciate your supporting by adding your signature to demonstrate the support for our campaign.
