The JusticeLA Coalition is made up of a diverse group of organizations and community members working to stop jail expansion in L.A. County. Los Angeles county has the largest jail system in the world. Yet, county officials are planning to expand the system and squander $3.5 billion in construction costs alone. Because imprisonment is fundamentally violent, JusticeLA is working to reduce the number of people locked up in Los Angeles.
