Communities Rising: Solutions to the War on Drugs and Mass Incarceration! Rally, Speak out and March!

Friday, June 17th 12 to 1:30 PM, San Francisco City Hall


Demands:
* Stop All Prison and Jail Construction
*Stop the 40 Year "War on Drugs"
*Stop Prison and Jail Overcrowding
* Stop the Cuts and Invest in Our Future.

Join us during the 40th anniversary of the war on drugs and the one year anniversary of AB 900 (the world's largest prison construction plan) breaking ground to come together across communities, to bring statewide attention to shifting budget priorities away from prisons and reinvesting in health and communities services.

This is an exciting time with the May 23rd US Supreme Court decision, coming out on the Plata/Coleman case upholding the ruling to reduce the CA prison population. We want to make sure that our demands of how to shift budget priorities and reduce our prison population are heard above all!

Sponsors include:
America Friends Service Committee (AFSC), All of Us or None, Berkeley Needle Exchange Emergency Distribution, California Coalition for Women Prisoner (CCWP), California Partnership, Californians United for a Responsible Budget (CURB), Critical Resistance (CR), Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), Legal Services for Prisoners with Children (LSPC), Justice Now, OASIS Clinic, SF Drug Users Union, TGI-Justice Project, These Cuts Won’t Heal, and United for Drug Policy Reform(UDPR).
