Act Now: The Police Auditorium is No Place for a Community Meeting

We are reaching out with an urgent request for your support in our ongoing struggle to crush San Francisco’s plans for a new replacement jail.

We have recently found out that there is an opportunity for public input on the proposed jail plan and wanted to make sure that as many people know about it as possible. On March 2nd from 6-8pm, Sheriff Mirkarimi and staff from the Department of Public Works will be hosting a public meeting on the environmental impact of the $278 million dollar jail plan.

While we are glad there is an opportunity for public input and hope you will stand with us, we are very dismayed that the meeting is currently taking place on the 6th floor (County Jail #3) of 850 Bryant.

Help us demand a more neutral and community-friendly location, like City Hall or the Community Assessment and Service Center (CASC) for a safer and more welcoming space for all in the community to participate.

We need your help before March 2nd!

1) Click here to email Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi and the Program Managers of the jail plan to demand a venue change of the meeting.

2) Plan to come to the meeting and speak out against this jail proposal! If you RSVP here, we can keep you posted on the final location.

San Francisco needs housing, employment, treatment, and mental healthcare – real solutions to incarceration.
