Only 7 sustainers to go!

Dear Supporter:

This mid-year fundraiser is already off to an amazing start thanks to the generosity of so many of our supporters that contribute to the sustainability of our amazing coalition.

Our grassroots organizing efforts are mirroring that dedication. In the past few weeks, our people power suspended the LA jail plan for 45 days, moved 2 supervisors in SF to oppose that city’s jail plan, and brought counties from across California to Sacramento to demand no more jails.

We could not have done that without supporters like you!

It is clear that decision makers are hearing our voices and we know that we still need to keep on demanding community solutions and alternatives to imprisonment. Supporter, can you help us make this fundraising campaign a huge success?

Help us raise $25,000 in direct donations and sign up 7 more monthly sustainers, so we can continue to fight!

As of this morning, we are well on our way to reaching our goals, but we still need all the help we can get.

Will you donate or become a monthly donor?

Thank you for being part of our statewide movement to reduce the number of prisons and jails, as well as the number of people incarcerated in California. Together, we will build a different California!

In solidarity,


Diana Zuñiga
Interim Statewide Coordinator
