Supporter, we need you these next 2 weeks!

Dear Supporter,

The county is making some really important decisions in the next two weeks and we need you to be present.

After a year-long process, the Board of Supervisors will hear recommendations regarding the size, scope, mission, and powers a Civilian Oversigt Commission can have.

On Tuesday, we need to pack the room!

DPN and so many allies have been fighting for the commission to have subpoena power, community representation, no law enforcement and other common sense powers. This Tuesday we will be able to see if these ideas will be a reality.

Will you join us on Tuesday?

Where: 500 West Temple St. LA, 90012

When: 9am Press Conference and Public Comment

Please join us in demanding a Civilian Oversight Commission with power.

And don’t forget to save the date to join us on August 4th. On this day the Board of Supervisors will be hearing about DA Lacey’s Mental Health Diversion Plan and the an status report on the jail plan and community based capacity!

We need you to keep fighting with us!

 In Solidarity, 

Jayda Rasberry
