Dear Supporter,

It’s hard to even keep up with how fast San Francisco decision makers are scrambling to push through proposed new SF Jail. We can see that our pressure is working. But some factions are still pushing the jail. There are two key events next week for our fight.

Will you join us in demanding that the Planning Commission, the Board of Supervisors and other jail proponents halt their moves to push through the proposed jail?

Join us this week for a series of actions to stop the proposed jail!

When: Wednesday, July 15th at 10:00am
Where: City Hall, Room #250, San Francisco

Agenda items will include approving the claim that the jail project will pose a less than significant environmental impact. The second item is to allow the Sheriff’s Department to apply for $80 million in jail contruction fund from the state while approving the entire project! This means that this meeting might be the only time we can publicly comment against the jail.

And the fight isn’t over.

On Thursday, July 16 at 10:30 AMSupervisors Jane Kim and London Breed are co-sponsoring an Alternatives to a Jail Rebuild hearing where we will testify about more holistic, community-based approaches to pursue instead of a harmful new jail.

Will you come to show your support and demand alternatives to the jail? If you cannt make it to the meetings please spread the word to our supporters via social media using #NoNewSFJail & #NoMoreJails!
