STOP PRISON AND JAIL CONSTRUCTION ACROSS THE STATE:
Sign on to our Statewide Petition Against Prison and Jail Expansion to demand that California decision-makers immediately end all jail and prison construction projects, invest in the health and well-being of our communities, and reduce incarceration.
STOP THE PROPOSED $2.3 BILLION JAIL IN LA COUNTY:
In January, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will scheduled a vote on whether LA should spend $1.4 BILLION to build more jail cells. Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said the plan would “consign the other vital services to second class status for two generations.”
Today you can sign the petition, pass it on to your friends, and call your supervisor to demand LA spend its resources on community-based programs and services, not costly jail expansion. Keep an eye out for updates about mobilizing to the Board of Supervisors meeting in January.
