Are you a service provider or do you use reentry services in community? Come to our upcoming workshop to help inform our campaign and get involved. CR Los Angeles (CRLA) continues to fight county jail expansion and we invite you to join us! The Sheriff and County Supervisors continue to assert that construction of two new jails – a new women’s jail in Lancaster and a replacement to Men’s Central downtown – can address health and mental health needs in LA communities. Using this false reasoning, they are pressing forward with 4,000 new jail beds. We know that a jail cell can never be a solution to health, mental health, or substance use needs. People directly impacted and service providers can play a key role in the ReImagine 109 campaign which is working to shift 50% of all funding allocated through AB 109 for reentry support away from the Sheriff’s Department and to community-based and user-led services.
This workshop is geared towards service providers or users. It is a Part II to last month’s workshop. New people welcome. Please share this message with your friends and comrades who may be interested in attending!
If you are a service provider in LA County and cannot attend the workshop but would like to get involved, please contact us at CRLA@criticalresistance.org
