Thunderclap our message!

Sign up for the thunderclap!

Dear Supporter,

Last week the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors, with a surprise and illegal vote, took one step forward and two more backwards when they voted to support the creation of an Office of Diversion and Reentry along with the massive jail plan. 

This week, after lots of public scrutiny, they decided to revisit the motion on September 1st.

Will you thunderclap our message with us? 

For the next week we will be asking you to stand with us and take a series of actions to let the board know that we do not want more jails for Los Angeles and we want to celebrate their commitment to diversion with them.

1) Sign up for the thunderclap! Once we get 100 people signed up we will be able to amplify our message through social media.

2) Come out on September 1st to 500 W. Temple St. LA, 90012

Imprisonment exacerbates mental and medical health problems, breaks up families, and takes away vital economic and emotional support from entire communities.

We know that our communities needs something different. Just check out the video in our thunderclap and sign up!

We hope to see you on Sept. 1st. We need you to continue the fight against expansion in Los Angeles!
