Who:           No New SF Jail Coalition

As District Attorney George Gascon promotes replacing the jail at 850 Bryant with a locked mental health facility controlled by the Courts and Sheriff, community members speak out against this jail by another name. No New SF Jail Coalition will unveil a people’s plan, The San Francisco Community Health Initiative, which prioritizes meeting social and economic needs in order to end imprisonment. Supervisors, healthcare workers, and grassroots activists will speak to the key points of the plan, which outlines a citywide, community-based approach to providing care instead of jailing San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations.

The No New SF Jail Coalition is a broad based coalition including organizations of formerly imprisoned people, youth with incarcerated parents, and those working on community resources such as health and housing. For more information and a list of endorsers, visit:
