Let's talk strategy. Join us for education and action!

Dear Supporter,



So much is happening in Los Angeles. We are still fighting strong against jail expansion; the county is moving towards comprehensive mental health diversion; and we’re pushing to get increased funding for more re-entry, social and health services for our community.

All this would not be without the efforts of our member organizations, such as Justice Now, Dignity and Power Now, Critical Resistance, and many more.

Now, we’re inviting you, Supporter, to come join us and our member organizations for education and action this week!

This Thursday, Dignity and Power Now is hosting a community convening to discuss effective civilian oversight of the LA County Sheriff’s Department.

On Saturday, organizers from Justice Now, Critical Resistance LA, and Dignity and Power Now will come together to discuss gender issues and different strategies to fight against prison and jail expansion.

Will you come and build with us? 

1) ALL EYES ON YOU Community Convening

When: Thursday, February 26th. 6:30 – 9:00pm

Where: Mercado la Paloma, 3655 S. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90007

When: Saturday, February 28th. 2 – 4pm
