This Friday: Care Not Cages Art Party!

Dear Supporter,

As part of the growing fight against more cages in Los Angeles the Los Angeles No More Jails Coalition is hosting an exciting radical art making event to continue building community resistance to the county’s proposed plan to build two new jails.

We hope you spread the word and join us!

WhatCare Not Cages Art Party

WhenFriday, June 10 from 3-7pm

Where: Chuco’s Justice Center, 1137 East Redondo Blvd. Inglewood, 90302

It is important that you come out and build with us this Friday. We now know that the cost for constructing the proposed jails has increased. The jail construction plan will now cost the county and our state over $3.7 billion. Come out this week and learn more about what this means for the future of LA County.

Will you join us? 

You will also learn from powerful artists and community activists, including Melanie Cervantes of Dignidad Rebelde and Joel Garcia of Self Help Graphics & Art, on making silkscreens and posters against the county’s $3.7 billion plan to build two new jails, and to amplify the community based alternatives we demand instead.

Hope to see you on Friday!

In solidarity,

Tutaya Kate
