On February 21st, The No New SF Jail Coalition celebrated our victory against the jail proposal in SF and brought people together to build community momentum for lasting alternatives to imprisonment. Close to 100 people representing organizations and community groups that worked together to stop the jail came together at El Rio in San Francisco, sharing stories of our multi-year campaign against new jail construction in SF.
- The Coalition is writing a decarceration plan for SF. Have an idea for community resources instead of cages? We need researchers, social workers, mental health workers, nurses, and you to help with this plan.
- Members of the Coalition are participating in a City working group to ensure closure of the jail at 850 Bryant. This group will have open meetings and we’ll be calling people out to attend & hold them accountable. Stay tuned!
