Join LANMJ this Mother’s Day!

As CURB and the LA No More Jails coalition continue to fight against the proposed construction of a new $200 million women’s jail in Los Angeles County, we’re also uplifting our women and their families at our annual LANMJ Mother’s Day Commemoration at Lynwood Jail.

At last year’s event, families were given the opportunity to share their stories and voice their concerns with the jail expansion plan. You can watch families advocate for their loved ones and communities here. 

This Mother’s Day event will continue our annual effort to bring love and healing to those visiting their loved ones at the current women’s jail in Lynwood. We will have an art space for children and a photographer to capture each family’s experience.

Will you join us for this amazing event? 

When: Sunday, May 14th from 8am-12pm

Where: Central Regional Detention Center (11705 S. Alameda St. Lynwood, 90059)

There will be coffee and light snacks, mini teach-ins between 9am-11am and resources for supporting family members.

Can’t join? Will you help us by sharing this video on social media with the hashtags #nomorejails and #nowomensjail?

We know you will continue to stand with us in our fight against incarceration in LA and across the state. We hope to see you on Mother’s Day!

In Solidarity,
