Join community members to share information about the jail plan, share our opinions about the jail plan, and get prepared for the January 23 Supervisors meeting. 

San Francisco seems determined to spend around $700 million to build a new jail, in spite of two nearly empty jails and In spite of the fact that a State agency on prison construction recommending AGAINST the SF jail rebuild. That money could be used to provide services to prevent from entering or re-entering jail in the first place. 3/4 of inmates are awaiting trial and there because they cannot make bail, and blacks are 10X over-represented in the jail population.
