Have you ever seen a line this long?

Dear Supporter,

On Tuesday over 250 people showed up to the Board of Supervisors!

RSVP for August 16th!

#nomorejails

This week you were among hundreds of Angelenos who took action to demand a Civilian Review Board, no more jails and push for community based solutions. 

Diana, thank you for raising your voice!

The Board rejected the proposal for a civilian review board for the Sheriff’s department and is funneling millions of dollars towards the mega jail plan.

This is merely a hurdle in our fight to stop the senseless expansion of our jails!

A few days after the vote, we received a letter from Superivsior Ridley-Thomas expressing his commitment to “ensure our County does all it can to end the prison system’s unjust and inhumane treatment of mentally ill individuals” and appreciation for all of our work.

To keep this momentum up on August, 16th we will caravan for Community Solutions and No More Cages! We’ll start at the site of the current women’s jail and travel together to the site of the proposed new women’s jail. 

Time & Locations:

  • 9:00 am – 10:30 am: Meet and Rally at Lynwood Jail (11705 S Alameda Ave Lynwood, CA 90262)
  • 11:00 am – 2:00 pm: Caravan from Lynwood to the former Mira Loma Detention Center (45100 60th St. W, Lancaster, CA 93536)
  • 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm: Rally at Mira Loma

Our work is far from done! We must stay loud and visible with our message – LA County Doesn’t Want A New Jail!
