The #Reimagine109 campaign focuses on re-directing at least 50% of LA County’s AB 109 funding to community-based programs that prioritize holistic care, dignity for all, and empowering those most impacted by the criminal justice system.
What the #Reimagine109 Campaign Proposes
#Reimagine109 presents LA County with the opportunity to develop comprehensive, coordinated processes among local government, health departments, and community-based service organizations. #Reimagine109 aims to reduce the reliance on LA County’s expensive criminal justice system and reduce recidivism by:
- Focusing on holistic health models and rehabilitation outside of the jail setting;
- Empowering community organizations led by people most impacted by incarceration with the resources necessary to adequately support reentry; and
- Supporting innovative programs that provide services rooted in the dignity of human life and that offer—among other services—drug use treatment, alcohol treatment, employment counseling, psychological counseling, trauma informed services, housing support, and mental health treatment.
