Join us in Alhambra tomorrow to block jail expansion in LA!

Dear Supporter,

Two days after former Sheriff Baca is found guilty and the block on the list of the #300Problematic deputies is still in place–the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors is planning an “Industry Day Forum.”

This “Industry Day Forum” is planned to provide information to construction related firms (large and small) that are interested in building the replacement to Men’s Central Jail.

With all that is happening in our county to incarcerate and deport our people and the recent deaths in our jail we know that NO MORE JAILS is the solution.

Join us Friday at 8:30 am to let all these construction companies know that Angelinos do not want this jail.

  • When: Friday, March 17 at 8:30 am
  • Where: 900 South Fremont Ave. Alhambra, CA 91803 (Conference Center)
  • What to wear: Please wear your No More Jails shirt!

LA No More Jails organizers will be out in full force including Critical Resistance LA, CURB, Dignity and Power Now, Gender Justice LA, Immigrant Youth Coalition and Youth Justice Coalition.

We need you Friday. And check out the recent coverage on our #MillionDollarHoods tool.

Let’s stop this jail plan now,

Los Angeles No More Jails Coalition
