Take action! CR releases “No New Jail in SF: The People’s Report”

CR-Oakland has just completed No New Jail in SF: The People’s Report to expose the human impact of the proposed jail. At the May 30 Town Hall, we will release this 30-page report and elevate the broad range of practical alternatives to more cages. Read the report and download it here.

While city officials are moving forward with plans to build a new jail in San Francisco, they are neglecting to consider the impacts on our community: it is destructive to criminalize people with mental health challenges, and Black, Brown, and poor San Franciscans.

In the Bay Area? SATURDAY MAY 30 TOWNHALL info HERE.

TAKE ACTION by June 3:

As part of the process to build the jail the building must go through an environmental review process. The planners of this jail decided that there was not enough evidence to point to any notable environmental concerns that would require a full Environmental Impact Report. Instead, they have released a Mitigated Negative Declaration, which you can read here. We believe that there are many environmental impacts to building this jail — not to mention human impacts. We have until June 3, 2015 to gather community comments responding to the Mitigated Negative Declaration, and voicing concerns about the environmental impacts of building this jail at 855 Bryant in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood.

Fight back with organizers from the No New SF Jail Coalition and take action HERE.

Every comment counts. Let’s stop this jail.
