TURN UP with us at the June 9th Public Protections Meeting at 9:30am to OPPOSE Alameda County's $61 million Santa Rita Jail construction project that has been approved without the community's consent.Added to the calendar on Tuesday Jun 7th, 2016 7:35 PM
The jail expansion is being presented and folded into other projects as an "imporvement project" in order to gain supervisor votes. We need to flex our growing grassroots community power to our Board of Supervisors so they will prioritize spending on county care, not cages!
Will you be there to help us change the tide right here in our community? Offer your public comments to prioritize spending on mental health and community-based programs.
We encourage community members to join us outside at the Alameda County Administrative Building at 9:30am. We will then move into the county chambers at 10am to collectively voice our opposition.
