Join us to #Reimagine109!

Dear Supporter,

We are very excited to invite you to the relaunch of an amazing campaign, #Reimagine109: LA’s 50% Campaign.

The #Reimagine109 campaign focuses on re-directing at least 50% of LA County’s AB 109 funding to community-based programs that prioritize holistic care, dignity for all, and empowering those most impacted by the criminal justice system. 

Will you #Reimagine109 with us?

What: #Reimagine109: Los Angeles 50% Campaign Summit

When: Thurs., Oct. 13th from 2-5pm

Where: Loyola Law School, Merrifield Hall (919 Albany St. LA, 90015)

When: Tuesday, October 11th at 9:30am

Our first summit for this multi-year campaign will feature Tash Nguyen, a Local Advocate from the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights in Alameda County where they successfully re-directed public safety realignment dollars towards community-based services. The convening will allow Los Angeles stake holders to learn what strategies were successful, what pieces were challenging and allow participants to develop a solid policy in LA.

The strategy convening will also be open to advocates and organizers in other counties that are interested in starting similar campaigns. Don’t forget to RSVP and see you on the 13th!

Looking forward to building with you,

Women’s Policy Institute Team – Alternatives to Incarceration, Los Angeles County
