Stop SF from Funding $80 million for New Jail

Dear Supporter,

Last week’s strong mobilizations left a big impression on the Board of Supervisors whose votes will be crucial in stopping the proposed SF jail this Tuesday.

We thank you for continuing to stand with us and now we need to go all out to stop the jail tomorrow!

City Hall is voting to approve San Francisco’s application for $80 million of state funding for the new SF jail project and will be holding a hearing to discuss the environmental impact. SF claims there are no significant environmental impacts, but we know better and have filed an appeal. On Tuesday the Planning Commission and the Board will be hearing our objections.

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?

When: Tuesday, July 21st at 3:00pm

Where: San Francisco City Hall, Room 250

With very few avenues for public participation leading up to this vote, we need to go all out on Tuesday to stop SF from building more cages. They’ve already increased the police force by 700 cops, and we can’t let the city build a new jail.

We need to continue putting pressure to stop the new SF Jail because we are winning!

In solidarity,

Diana Block
