Join us Saturday to plug into the SF jail fight

Dear Supporter,

This Saturday: Community Town Hall for a Jail-Free San Francisco!

There is just under a week left before the No New SF Jail Coalition’s upcoming town hall on our next steps towards a jail-free city.

On December 1st, the SF Board of Supervisors will review a series of proposals put forth by the city’s work group on alternatives to the jail at 850 Bryant. Though we successfully advanced recommendations of bail reform, supportive housing and services, we will need to keep up the pressure in order to move the city away from its reliance on jails.

While we have a lot of ideas to uplift, we also need to stay vigilant against efforts to re-entrench jailing and policing as solutions to unmet needs in our communities.

On Saturday, we’ll present the concrete steps behind our vision, which we’ve also published in tools like 8 Steps to a Jail-Free San Francisco and the San Francisco Community Health Initiative. This will be your chance to learn how you can get involved in the next steps of this city-wide fight.

We hope you can make it!

Community Town Hall for a Jail-Free San Francisco

When: Saturday, November 19 at 12 PM – 3 PM

Where: The Redstone Building, 2940 16th Street (at Capp Street)

Lunch will be provided

If you would like Spanish interpretation at the Town Hall, please email us at nosfjail@curbprisonpending.org and we will be sure to provide it.

See you there!

In solidarity,

The No New SF Jail Coalition

Este Sábado: Reunión Pública de la Comunidad para un San Francisco Sin Cárcel

Solo falta una semana antes de la reunión pública de la Coalición Contra Cárceles Nuevas en SF, donde presentaremos nuestros próximos pasos hacia una ciudad sin cárceles.

En el 1 de diciembre, la Junta de Supervisores de SF van a examinar una serie de propuestas presentadas por el grupo de trabajo en alternativas a la cárcel en 850 Bryant. Aunque hemos avanzado con éxito recomendaciones de reforma de la fianza, vivienda de apoyo seguro y otros servicios, tendremos que mantener la presión para alejar la ciudad de su dependencia en las cárceles.

Aún que tenemos muchísimas ideas para apoyar, también tenemos que mantenernos vigilante contra esfuerzos que re-consolidaran el encarcelamiento y la policía como soluciones a las necesidades insatisfechas en nuestras comunidades.

Este sábado presentaremos los pasos concretos detrás de nuestra visión, cuales también hemos publicado en documentos como 8 Pasos Para Un San Francisco Sin Cárcel y la Iniciativa de Salud Comunitaria en San Francisco. Este evento será tu oportunidad para aprender cómo te puedes involucrar en los próximos pasos de esta lucha.

¡Esperamos que puedas venir!

Reunión Pública de la Comunidad para un San Francisco Sin Cárcel
