Organizer/AuthorTash Nguyen
We need all hands on deck in Alameda County! Despite rapidly growing community opposition, the sheriff's department is barrelling forward to seek county supervisor approval for the proposed mental health expansion at Santa Rita jail without the community's consent.

Mobilize with us tomorrow at the Alameda County Board of Supervisors' meeting (1221 Oak St., Oakland) at 9:30 a.m. to show our county officials that we are united, that we don't back down, and that we know what our community truly needs.

Will you help us change the tide in Alameda County?

Sign the petition!

The sheriff will be seeking approval for the expansion’s proposed architect and we are mobilizing to tell our Board of Supervisors that we need county money spent on care, not cages! RSVP here.

Let’s show the sheriff and the Board of Supervisors that the community is watching, and that we don’t support money being poured into the sheriff’s pockets.

Come support the No Jail Expansion in Alameda County Coalition as they (and you) try to convince the Alameda County Board of Supervisors to halt their plans to expand Santa Rita Jail.

The Alameda Jail Fight Coalition is gathering to call attention to the Alameda County’s $54 million Santa Rita Jail construction project that has been approved without the community’s consent.

We are expecting the Sheriff’s office to seek approval for the expansion’s proposed construction builder and we are mobilizing to tell our Board of Supervisors that we need county money spent on care, not cages!

Grassroots community organizing power to oppose the jail and prioritize mental health diversion and community-based solutions is growing rapidly. We need you there to help us stop this jail expansion in its tracks.

We encourage community members to join us outside at the Alameda County Administrative Building. We will then move into the county chambers to collectively voice our opposition.

The sheriff will be seeking approval for the expansion's proposed architect and we are mobilizing to tell our Board of Supervisors that we need county money spent on care, not cages! RSVP here.Â

Let's show the sheriff and the Board of Supervisors that the community is watching, and that we don't support money being poured into the sheriff's pockets.
