POLICING FAILS OAKLAND: Check out our new Oakland Power Projects website.
The Oakland Power Projects help Oakland residents invest in practices, relationships, and resources that build community power and well being. By identifying current harms, amplifying existing resources, and developing new practices that do not rely on policing solutions, The Oakland Power Projects remind us that we can make our families and neighborhoods safe and healthy without relying on the cops.
SIGN OUR PETITION TO STOP PRISON AND JAIL EXPANSION IN CALIFORNIA!
In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the state of California to reduce its prison population by 33,000 prisoners. Yet, the State of California and over 30 counties are moving forward with plans to spend tens of billions of dollars to build thousands of new prison and jail beds across the state instead of mandating alternatives to imprisonment, reducing prison and jail populations and eradicating draconian sentencing laws. Further prison and jail expansion would be a human travesty and an expensive waste of resources.
California does not need and cannot afford more prisons and jails.
ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS TO IMPRISONMENT
Californian’s health and safety will not be improved with jail expansion. California county jails are inherently violent, poorly run, and wastes of taxpayer money. The public funds that are now used to police, convict and incarcerate people should be going to provide housing, education, health care & employment. Safe and healthy communities depend on mental health services, youth centers, supportive and affordable housing, and real opportunities in their communities; not cages.
