Saturday May 30 SF TOWN HALL!

Supporter, oppose a new jail in San Francisco! 

City officials are moving foward with plans to build a new jail. They have not considered the impacts on our community of continuing to pursue the same destructive policies that criminalize people with mental health challenges, and Black, Brown and poor San Franciscans.

San Francisco doesn’t need another jail to saddle us with 30 years of debt. If city officials can come up with the money to build and maintain a jail, when the ones we have are already half empty, why can’t they find the money to fully fund the programs we need to keep people out of jail?

We need to invest in alternatives, not more cages! Mental health & substance abuse treatment, housing, jobs, healthcare, lives with dignity – that’s what safety looks like!

We can stop this jail! Come find out about upcoming opportunities to fight back. 

When: Saturday, May 30, 2015

Time: 24 pm

Where: 2940 16th Street, 2nd floor

In Solidarity,

   Andrea Salinas
