Stop us from organizing at the Santa Cruz jail? We say no way!

Only three days after hundreds of people attended the Cages Kill – Freedom Rally, the Sheriff along with other County bureaucrats have proposed an ordinance that would make it a misdemeanor to be within “designated security perimeters” around the jail.

Sign here to say: No Way!

This is a deliberate attempt to stop us from organizing against this deadly jail.

We are urgently requesting that you sign our letter to the Board of Supervisors asking them to reject (Chapter 10.24). This proposal could criminalize our rallies at the jail and our weekly jail support work.

The first hearing to discuss the ordinance is tomorrow, Tuesday, February 10th at the Board of Supervisors meeting. We hope you can make it out to 701 Ocean St. Rm #525, Santa Cruz 95060 from 9am-3pm (end time varies, depending on how long items take, and this ordinance is item #6 on the Regular Agenda).

Please come to the meeting prepared to make public comments of 2-3 minutes and don’t forget to sign and share the letter!
