The No SF Jail Coalition mobilizes the community to fight the proposed new jail and demand accountability from the city officials!
On March 2nd, 2015, we mobilized an action outside of the site of the proposed new jail to show the impact that the jail would have on the community in San Francisco and demand real solutions for the people of San Francisco. As a collective group we attended the community meeting on the environmental impact of building the jail. After listening for an hour to many city officials attempting to sell the jail to the community, we realized that this meeting would not address the community’s concerns about the impacts of building a jail in the Soma. The planning department has since claimed that there are so few environmental concerns that an entire Environmental Impact Report need not even be carried through. Yet the community has seen none of the necessary preliminary studies they conducted to get to this conclusion nor have we received any transparency or accountability about this process despite our demands.
