Supporters rallied at the Bell Tower in Capitol Square on Saturday to support prison reform bills that were recently filed in the Virginia General Assembly. The measures included parole reform, record expungement and good behavior incentives.

According to CBS 6, there were more than 50 supporters at the rally, organized by the Virginia Prison Justice Network. Organization leaders and family members of inmates were among those who spoke at the event, with some family members reading letters from inmates.
