Tuesday Oct 25 | Rise Up to #StopToxicJail!

The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors is planning to vote on two items that will move forward the $3.7 billion jail plan in our community.

On Tuesday, they plan to vote on the final Environmental Impact Report for the proposed women’s jail in Lancaster and to approve draft construction plans for the replacement to Men’s Central Jail. 

This is a big day for the economic future of Los Angeles and we hope that you can join us to say #nomorejails.

When: Tuesday, Oct. 25th at 10am

What: Rise Up to #StopToxicJail

Where: 500 West Temple St. Los Angeles, CA 90012

On this day the board will also be discussing an item regarding the Prop. 47 savings that are going towards providing services and support for our community members and loved ones.

But, they will be approving parts of the jail plan and we need you to keep pushing for what Los Angeles needs and deserves.

Come out on Tuesday and bring five friends. Let’s keep on fighting jails and building strong communities together!
