Let's heal our women together…

Dear Supporter,

As we continue to fight against the proposed construction of a new $200 million women’s jail in Los Angeles County we want to invite you to the LANMJ Mother’s Day Event to celebrate our victories and our women. 2016 Mothers Day Poster_FINAL_v2

Last year’s event was a moving experience for everyone involved. Just check out the video that was created by an LANMJ member. 

This Mother’s Day Event, like last year’s, will focus on bringing love and healing to those visiting their loved ones at the
current women’s jail in Lynwood. We will have an art space for children, a listening station for visitors, and a photographer to caputure each family’s experience.

Will you join us for this amazing event? 

When: Sunday, May 8th from 8am-12pm

Where: Central Regional Detention Center (11705 S. Alameda St. Lynwood, 90059)

There will be Spanish translation available, snacks, and water!

Can’t join? Will you help us by sharing this video on social media with the hashtags #nomorejails and #nowomensjail?

We know you will continue to stand with us in our fight against incarceration in LA and across the state. We hope to see you on Mother’s Day!
