2 Days Away, Share Our Video Today!

In two days, the Board of State and Community Corrections will decide which counties will receive jail construction funding. We need you all to help us out in a few ways and demand that we stop all jail construction in California.

We know that none of our counties need another jail. We know that we need alternatives to incarceration, community solutions, and programs that keep our families economically secure and thriving.

Please help us out in a few ways today:
1) Watch and share this amazing video created by our member group, Sin Barras, displaying the voices of our community members against jail construction on Dec. 4th.
2) Join Us at a Mobilization on Jan. 16th
Time: 9:00 am
Location: The Kenneth Hahn Auditorium, Century Station, 11703 South Alameda Street, Lynwood, CA 90262
Time: 4:30 pm
Location: The Clock Tower, Santa Cruz, CA 95060

2) Share this email with your family, friends, and colleagues.

Thank you for continuing to stand with us. We couldn’t do this without your support and strength. Ya Basta!
