VOTE March 3, 2020 

The March 3, 2020 California Primary provides a unique opportunity for jail reform. Constituents can vote YES on R, the Reform Jails and Community Reinvestment ballot initiative. The truck will travel throughout L.A County promoting passage of YES on R. See schedule below the image.

 

The 3 Core Issues

 

  • Over incarceration of people who suffer from mental illness. LA County’s current practice prioritizes incarceration over treatment and   perpetuates cycles of instability and homelessness.

  • Substandard mental health care in jails, which results in jail based violence and self-harm.

  • Lack of Accountability and Oversight of the Sheriff’s Department compromises the safety of people held in the jails and protects deputy corruption.

 

If we win, L.A. County will:

 

  • Invest in rehabilitation and mental health treatment

  • Reduce the jail population

  • Root out corruption to prevent abuses by the Jails and Sheriff’s Department

LOUDER THAN WORDS is partnering with two organizations dedicated to jail reform and the plight of the incarcerated,  Reform L.A. Jails (RLAJ) and Dignity and Power Now (DPN) and. We are also working with Patrisse Cullors. Patrisse is an artist, organizer and freedom fighter. She is a Cofounder of Black Lives Matter, Founder of DPN, and Coalition Chair of RLAJ.
