LA Jail Plan Not a Done Deal…

Dear Supporter,

We appreciate your continued commitment to fight against jail expansion in Los Angeles and for community-based alternatives.

LA No More Jails wanted to let you know that although the LA Board of Supervisors approved a jail plan this month we know it is NOT a done deal.

And we can’t fight this without you. Here are the next few steps you can take with us:

1) Read and share this piece: Why LA’s $2 Billion Jail Plan is Not a Done Deal.

2) Come out on Sept. 29th to the LA Board of Supervisors to support ICE out of LA. They will be talking about the final version of the County Budget and discussing their new deportation policy called PEP-Comm.

3) Save the date for the next Freedom Function on October 6th hosted by LANMJ and Critical Resistance LA.

Looking forward to continuing to fight with you. If you want to get more involved in the fight or have any questions please contact us at lanomorejails@curbprisonspending.org.
