Sherriff Ross Mirkarimi insist that decrepit SF jails need a $632 million rebuild, not to provide more beds, but to provide space for services like family visitation, but many prison justice advocates disagree, saying that while the Hall of Justice jails are decrepit, the City uses only 60% of its available beds, and more importantly, 70-80% are there awaiting trial, a population disproportionately poor and minority without resources to make bail.

Join us as representatives from the Sheriff’s office and Californians United for a Responsible Budget, which seeks to reverse mass incarceration, debate the best way forward for prison and restorative justice.
