TUESDAY JUNE 9: Stop the $2 billion Jail Plan in Los Angeles!

Dear Supporter,

Take Action for #NoMoreJails in Los Angeles! Next Tuesday June 9, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and Chief Executive Office will present a status update on the $2 billion jail construction plan and discuss mental health treatment in the jails.

Join us as we mobilize to the Board of Supervisors to demand an end to jail expansion and for the redirection of funding to community-based alternatives. Instead of wasting more money on more cages,Los Angeles needs the billions that this jail plan would cost to invest in expanding affordable housing, mental health care, stable employment and all the other services and programs that would strengthen our communities.

SPEAK OUT against the jail plan! 

What: Rally and Press Conference at 9:30am and Public Comment at 11am

When: Tuesday, June 9

Where: 500 W. Temple Street, Los Angeles 90012

We won’t stop until this jail plan is cancelled— and we need your support. Help us amplify our message by participating in public comment. If you want to receive talking points before Tuesday please email Christina@curbprisonspending.org.
 
Let’s stop this $2 billion jail plan together. #NoMoreJails

In solidarity,

Diana Zuñiga
Interim Statewide Coordinator
Californians United for a Responsible Budget

P.S., Join us in a statewide mobilization against jail expansion on June 26th in Sacramento! Save the date for now, and stay tuned for more details on how you can fight for justice in California.
