Yesterday, the No New SF Jail Coalition joined the Sister Warriors Freedom Coalition outside of County Jail 2 in a Banner Drop Statewide Day of Action to echo our community’s calls for California Governor Gavin Newsom to immediately:
- Free people from state prisons, use power, including mass clemency and emergency release
- Stop transfers from state and local custody to ICE and between California prisons;
- Stop the expansion of immigration detention
- Hold the detention industry accountable.
The statewide banner drop coordinated dozens of groups from San Diego to Yuba to rename jails, prisons, and other detention facilities after Governor Newsom. We are especially grateful to have been part of this event alongside SF members of the Sister Warriors Freedom Coalition, who are doing rad work to push for decriminalization, decarceration, and transformative justice across the state.Continue reading “NNSFJ joins activists across the state in a solidarity action urging Governor Newsom to #StopICEtransfers and #FreeThemAll”
