Care Not Cages! #ShutDown850

Join us in this campaign to ensure that the City closes this seismically dangerous and racist anti-Black jail, stops the attacks on houseless people and people with mental health needs, and invests in housing and other life sustaining resources.

Take a stand against racism & criminalization!

Join us in calling for the permanent closure of County Jail #4 at 850 Bryant St, without increased policing, new jails, out-of-county transfers or electronic surveillance monitoring.  Together we can build a jail-free San Francisco!

Action Alert: Monday 8/24–Take Action for a Better Budget & REGISTER for August Abolition in Action on Harm Reduction!

MONDAY 8/24: Submit verbal or written comment to SF’s Budget & Appropriations Committee to fund community, not policing & jailing!

Monday, 8/24 — 10 am

Help us keep up momentum: this Monday will be the last time we can give public comment before the Budget and Appropriations Committee votes on the budget that will be voted on by the full board. We have been asking the Board to divest from policing all summer and we know they’re listening– we can’t give up now!

How you can make your voice heard: 

  • Email the Board of Supervisors to ask them to invest in care, not cops and cages.

  • Join us at the meeting live — your voice is most powerful when you speak from the heart about why you believe jailing and policing do not keep us safe.

  • If you’re unable to dial in, you can send a written comment via email. It’s still really important that the supervisors hear from you before they vote next week!

  • You can find phone instructions, an email template, and talking points HERE.
    These materials will be available in Spanish by Sunday.
