Reminder: Let's Pack the Room Today!

Supporter,

Let’s pack the house today and show how strong San Francisco’s opposition is to this controversial replacement jail proposal.

  • 12:00pm-2:00pm: Capital Planning Committee Meeting in City Hall.  at 1 Dr Carlton B Goodlett Place, SF. This committee is voting on keeping the jail plan in the 10 year Capital Plan. We need anyone who can speak out against the jail to join us!
  • 5:30pm-6:00pm: March and Rally! Today our rally will start in front of the jail at 850 Bryant.  We will have a series of powerful speakers from TGI Justice Project, and more.  We will be joined by the BLO (Brass Liberation Orchestra) and march to the CASC for the Environmental Impact Community Meeting. Bring banners and signs and come prepared to dance!
  • 6:00pm-8:00pm: Environmental Impact Community Meeting. 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 at the Community Assessment and Service Center (CASC) at 564 6th Street in San Francisco. Bring your best examples of the environmental impacts that jail and incarceration has on your life and your community.

San Francisco needs real solutions to public safety, housing, jobs, education, mental health care, not more of the same failed policies that harm our community. Justice is won when we build a future of opportunity for everyone, not more jails.

RSVP here and spread the word (on Facebook or by sharing the updated event flyer), it’s coming up quick!

Let’s do this!
