What:

On Tuesday, March 3rd the Alameda County Board of Supervisors will finally vote on the county's public safety budget—join us as we tell them to vote for jobs not jails, books not bars, and healthcare not handcuffs. 

For the past six months, we have campaigned for the Alameda County Board of Supervisors to set aside half of their public safety budget for community programs and services.

But on February 9th, the Community Corrections Partnership Executive Committee recommended that the supervisors allocate $18 million—more than half of their public safety funds—to the sheriff.

Join us and demand more funding for community programs that provide housing, education, healthcare, and restorative justice. 

RSVP on Facebook and contact our local organizers Maria Dominguez (maria@ellabakercenter.org, 510-285-8245) or Darris Young (darris@ellabakercenter.org, 510-285-8242) for more information.
