Join Us on Father’s Day!

 

Thank you to all those folks that came out to the LANMJ’s Mother’s Day event in May! This weekend we are celebrating Father’s Day at the Twin Towers and we want to invite you to join us.

We also wanted to share the amazing video that MiTú created after our Mother’s Day event!

You can share it on facebook and twitter too.

Will we see you on Father’s Day?

Date: Sunday, June 18th

Time: 9am-12pm

Location: Twin Towers Correctional Facility (450 Bauchet St. Los Angeles, 90012)

We will be on the corner of Vignes and Bauchet. We’ll have a photo booth where folks can take pictures to bring to their loved ones. We will also have coffee, snacks and teach-ins throughout the morning!

Come take a stand against jail expansion and in support of healthy communities!

In solidarity,

Ivette Alé
