Families all across New York will rally against a package ban in several state prisons.
The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision changed their package policy earlier this year. It prohibits people from sending food packages to incarcerated family members.
Incarcerated people can only get two non-food or personal packages a year.
All food packages must now go through approved vendors if they're willing to deliver.
Families will gather outside Sing Sing Prison Tuesday morning to speak out on the emotional and financial toll they say the ban has on the health of incarcerated people.
