Dear Supporter,Tomorrow California’s Assembly Budget Committee will be discussing a dangerous proposal that would add $500 million for jail construction to this year’s budget. Stopping this funding stream would mark an important victory for our loved ones, friends, neighbors and coworkers across California who have been fighting against the harmful construction of jails in their communities.
Enough is enough. Let’s stand together and take action to end the attacks on our communities. We need an investment in education, affordable housing, job training, healthcare, treatment, and other community-based programs and services.
On Wednesday April 23rd, the item will be discussed in the Assembly Budget Committee. The hearing will take place at 1:30pm in room 437.
Can you join us in Sacramento?
