We, along with Youth Justice Coalition, Public Counsel, and other community organizations, are convening an open meeting on Wednesday, March 25, with Los Angeles County public officials to discuss how they will protect the basic human rights of young people and adults who are system involved.
Last week, more than 60 groups submitted a letter to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Los Angeles County Dept. of Probation, and other officials demanding that they immediately release as many detained and incarcerated young people and adults as possible in light of the COVID-19 epidemic. Incarcerated people and advocates have reported widespread safety concerns about conditions across L.A. County's carceral facilities, including in the juvenile halls and camps.
Please join our online meeting to learn why L.A. County must immediately release as many people as possible; to engage in a dialogue between officials, impacted families and community organizations to lift up solutions that will advance both the human rights and protection of people who are detained and incarcerated; and to discuss how you can support efforts to ensure the health and dignity of everyone in L.A. County.
