Freedom Function happening tomorrow!

Dear Supporter,

The third FREEDOM FUNCTION is happening tomorrow. Los Angeles No More Jails Coalition is bringing together different communities organizing across Los Angeles’ many and varied neighborhoods.

12038573_929387213801507_50443415371089124_oWe’ll be talking through how to respond to issues of mental health in our communities and unmasking the narrative of ‘gender responsive’ jails and seeing them for what they are: gender cages.

Come out to “Jails Are Not Service Providers – LA’s Mental Health & Gender Cages” Freedom Function Tomorrow!

When: Tuesday, Nov. 3rd  6:30-8:30p

Where: LA Community Action Network (838 East 6th Street, LA 90013)

The language used by the sheriffs department to promote this jail plan is part of a bigger trend of branding cages and the sheriffs who run them as public service providers. But we know better!

Come learn about the landscape of this fight and be a part of the movement to stop these jails and build healthier, more autonomous communities!

In Solidarity, 

Shabina Toorawa
