Last week’s strong mobilizations left a big impression on the Board of Supervisors whose votes will be crucial in stopping the proposed SF jail this Tuesday.
City Hall is voting to approve San Francisco’s application for $80 million of state funding for the new SF jail project and will be holding a hearing to discuss the environmental impact. SF claims there are no significant environmental impacts, but we know better and have filed an appeal. On Tuesday the Planning Commission and the Board will be hearing our objections.
When: Tuesday, July 21st at 3:00pm
Where: San Francisco City Hall, Room 250
With very few avenues for public participation leading up to this vote, we need to go all out on Tuesday to stop SF from building more cages. They’ve already increased the police force by 700 cops, and we can’t let the city build a new jail.
