Tuesday – County to Vote on Jail Expansion!

Take Action Here!

Dear Supporter,

FAME has joined the City of Richmond and a wide array of health, faith, labor, and civil rights groups, to protest the Contra Costa County sheriff’s plan to construct a new $89 million expansion, adding 418 beds.

It’s a critical time to stand up against mass incarceration as the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors is on the verge of voting for a massive jail expansion at the West County Detention Facility.

There are two things you can do this final week before the vote to STOP this tragic use of funds, UNLOCK our communities, and END mass incarceration.

1) Email the Contra Costa Board of Supervisors right now!

2) Rally and give public comment against the expansion at the Board of Supervisors Meeting.

When: Tuesday, August 19th at 9am

Where: 651 Pine Street, Martinez, 94553

We need you to take action right now. Contra Costa needs funds for education, jobs, housing, and health care, NOT jails!

Hope to see you at the vote and appreciate you taking action.

In community,

Kristi Laughlin
