L.A.Times tips us off again! Newly-elected L.A. County Supervisor Hilda Solis and current Supervisor Ridley-Thomas are bringing the Civilian Review Board back up for a vote on Tuesday!
And, on Wednesday the new Adelanto City Council will discuss the plans to expand their jails, one of which is supposed to be for LA County jail overflow. A year ago we defeated sending 512 people from LA County to Taft in Kern County.
And now Adelanto is proposing a 3,264 bed jail to send Angelenos 85 miles away from their community.
These transitions in leadership continue to mark a moment for us to change the direction of our communities; from incarceration and violence to community solutions and civilian support.
Will you join us this week?
When: Tuesday, Dec. 9th at 9am
Where: 500 W. Temple St. Los Angeles, CA 90012
When: Wednesday, Dec. 10th at 7pm
Where: 11600 Air Expy, Adelanto, California 92301
Interested? Email me to carpool from LA at Diana@curbprisonspending.com.
Now that we have some new leadership, will you continue to join me in supporting changes that the newly-elected can make?
