Can Stop, Will Stop: Join us to fight jail expansion!

Los Angeles is still in the thick of a $3.7 billion jail plan and the county budget process. The county still has the opportunity to invest in community solutions instead of incarceration. To continue the conversation and build up pressure, CURB and it’s members are organizing several events in the next three weeks for you to join our fight!

We will be discussing the county budget and alternative budget campaigns that our members are working on at our first event this coming Tuesday. 

One important aspect is that we will be discussing the last opportunity to pressure the Board of Supervisors to reject the proposed women’s jail. The Final Environmental Impact Report will be heard by the Supervisors in early October. So, it’s all hands on deck!

Will you join us to learn more and plug in?

There is so much happening in LA and lots of ways that you can support our fight for a stronger Los Angeles that doesn’t rely on incarceration to solve our social problems. We can stop and we will stop jail expansion in LA and need you to help us.
