City Council President Darrell Clarke made the proclamation Thursday morning. He was joined by State Sen. Sharif Street in praising Mill, whose legal troubles catapulted him into national stardom as a criminal justice advocate and critic of mass incarceration.

The rappers joined forces with the likes of Patriots owner Robert Kraft, 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, Nets co-owner Clara Wu Tsai, Van Jones and others to launch Reform Alliance Wednesday, which they say will fight to get at least a million people out of jail over the next five years with a focus on probation and parole.

Meek kicked things off by recounting his harrowing story of being jailed for 5 months on a petty probation violation, and says there are countless people caught up in the system who are voiceless … for whom he now wants to speak and fight.
