Take action tomorrow to say, "No new jail in San Francisco!"

Dear Supporter,

Tomorrow join us as we raise our voices to the SF Board of Supervisors and demand they remove the proposed new SF jail from the Capital Plan. Now is an opportunity to build real solutions for our future San Francisco instead of building more cages. With your support, we’ve been fighting hard, and on Wednesday we can take action again: No New Jail in San Francisco! 

You may have heard that yet another SF Jail scandal has emerged in the news, demonstrating the callous and cruel nature of the SF Jail system. San Francisco sheriff deputies have been orchestrating “gladiator fights” between people locked up inside the county jailsThis disturbing news couldn’t help make our campaign more clear: San Francisco doesn’t need another jail where such systemic violence can take place!

Join us on Wednesday at City Hall to stop the proposed jail!

When: Wednesday, April 15th at 1pm
Where: City Hall, Room #250, San Francisco
Click here to view the agenda.

Can’t make it but ready to take action? Send an email to Board of Supervisors Farrell, Tang, Wiener, Mar and Yee and demand that they take a position against the Capital Plan.

Together we can fight this proposed new jail and invest in community power.

In solidarity,
 Coral Feigin
Critical Resistance Oakland and WRAP,
