Dear Diana,This Tuesday, the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors will vote to move forward on 1 of 5 proposed jail plans created by Vanir Construction Management, Inc.
The new jail plan is proposing to spend over $2.3 billion to expand the L.A. county jail system by constructing a “Women’s Village” and a “Mental Health Jail”. The county has refused to use any of the millions of dollars to implement well-founded strategies that reduce recidivism, reduce the number of people in L.A.’s violent jails and invest in viable solutions that create truly safer 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.
We need you to stand with us:
When: Tuesday, May 6th 2014
Time: 10:00 am
Location: 500 W. Temple St., Rm 381B, Los Angeles
We need you there to speak out and demand that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors stop this madness and invest in building strong communities.Please help us get our message to the L.A. Board of Supervisors today!
