Dear Supporter,

Tomorrow, Riverside All of Us or None has invited us to give a presentation and participate in a discussion on the local and state corrections budgets!

Budgets can make or break a country, state, county, or community. What does the California State Budget and the Riverside County Budget value?

With the state budget passing the proposed $500 million dollars for county jail construction, this event provides us an opportunity to look closely at what the implications of this costly jail construction fund are and what it means for our communities in Riverside. It also gives us the chance to discuss what is happening with the Riverside County budget.

Join us:

What: “Local and State Jail and Prisons Budgets” Presentation and Open Discussion

Where: Unitarian Universalist Church, 3657 Lemon Street, Riverside CA 

When: Friday, July 11th at 6:30pm – 8:00pm

I am so excited and hope you will join us! Please spread the word and invite your friends, family and community to join me for this discussion!
