Stop the Donovan Prison Expansion

Dear Supporter,

San Diego doesn’t need new prison cells. California tried to build its way out of its overcrowding crisis for 30 years. Building hasn’t solved overcrowding; it just spread terrible conditions over more lives.

There are literally dozens of ways to reduce the prison population – including expanding good time credits, releasing terminally ill and permanently medically incapacitated prisoners, implementing an older prisoner parole program, expanding the Alternative Custody Program and reforming drug sentencing laws.

Prisons are historically not good for the economic growth of communities and will not be good for San Diego. San Diego needs adequate paying jobs for our communities, not another prison.
