Thanks to our mighty people power, San Francisco is on its way to closing one of its jails. Now, we need to make sure the City invests in the policy changes and services necessary to truly support our communities.
We’ll be releasing a new report outlining alternatives to arrest and imprisonment: “San Francisco Community Health Initiative: A People’s Plan for Shifting Reliance Away from the Criminal Legal System and Toward Community-Based Solutions.”
In just one month, community members and city officials will be rolling out proposals for alternatives to jail construction in SF. Now is the time to remind them of what we truly need in our city: housing, social services, jobs, and mental health and substance use treatment in the community, not in cages.
Where: SF City Hall, Civic Center, Polk Street Steps
