This week our county decision makers got into a heated debate over Civilian Oversight power. The discussion was focused on subpoena power and community representation with no final decision made. There is still a lot of room for public pressure to create a Commission with teeth.
This week brings us two important conversations. The first is a report of DA Lacey’s mental health diversion plan. And the second involves revisiting the $2 billion jail plan.
Check out this amazing video we created with Dignity and Power Now showing what our communities actually want and need. And come out on Tuesday to support this vision and tell the supervisors #nomorejails!
Where: 500 West Temple St. LA, 90012
When: Tuesday, August 4th at 9am for a Press Conference and Public Comment
We will also be launching an important resource that we want you to be a part of. We believe it is something that will change the way this jail plan is moving.
Can’t come on Tuesday? Then please share the video and keep a lookout for information to learn more about this surprise resource that will be public Tuesday.
We can’t do this without you!
