LA CAN and friends say, “No New Jails” in Los Angeles County!

Los Angeles residents, organizations and activists say no to a planned jail expansion in Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors is currently exploring five proposals offered by Vanir Construction Management Inc. that include building a “mental health facility” (jail) and a “women’s village” (also a jail) at a cost of $1.3 – $1.6 billion dollars. Nowhere in the Vanir proposal is any alternative(s) to building new jail facilities. The proposal is short-sighted and residents are gearing up for a fight to have those dollars placed in community-based crime prevention solutions like housing, services and economic opportunities. Get involved today and please comment on the video. Even the LA Times Editorial section has questions.
