A conference called Reform Philly: Bringing Injustice to Light took place earlier today (Tuesday) in Philadelphia which was centered around Meek Mill’s case and live streamed by TIDAL.
The talk of experts, which happened at the UPENN campus in Philadelphia, discussed the injustices and unfair treatment in the current legal system, which Meek Mill’s case and attorneys have been highlighting. Meek Mill was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison in November last year and has since then, been denied bail. In February this year, the rapper’s attorneys filed a petition to seek his release from jail on bond but were again denied.
Al Sharpton, Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative Meek Mill’s mother, Kathy Williams and his attorney Joe Tacopina were the speakers at the event. Towards the end of the talk, Joe called Meek in prison and put him on loud speaker so he could speak about his feelings and thank everyone in attendance and all fans watching the stream for their continued support.
