This event has been canceled. Stay tuned — follow us on Facebook & Twitter for the latest information about Elect Your Sheriff events!

L.A. Voters, we have a sheriff runoff!

In June, we went to the polls and voted for many electeds, including the L.A. Sheriff. The sheriff holds a tremendous amount of power with responsibilities such as providing patrol services for 153 unincorporated communities and 42 cities; courthouse security for the Superior Court of L.A.; and housing and transportation of 17,000 people who are incarcerated in its jail system, which is the largest in the country.

We have two candidates who are racing to become the next Sheriff, incumbent Jim McDonnell and candidate Alex Villanueva.

The ACLU SoCal, ACLU SoCal's Antelope Valley Chapter, LA Progressive, Justice Not Jails, LA Regional Reentry Partnership, Dignity and Power Now, Youth Justice Coalition and others are hosting a community forum, called "Elect Your Sheriff" on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 10a-12p at the Antelope Valley Partners for Health Conference Center. This is a great opportunity for the L.A. community to come meet and listen to the candidates.

L.A. voters, it is up to YOU to decide who YOU think is the right Sheriff for Los Angeles County. Get ready to go to the polls again in November!

Reserve your seats by RSVPing on People Power.

The Sheriff-Coroner and District Attorney races in Orange County are headed to the first runoff in several years after voters turned out in record numbers for the primary election.

The Sheriff and District Attorney are two of the most powerful elected officials in Orange County and California. Yet, most voters don’t pay close attention to the candidates or simply skip the box on the ballot.

Join Resilience Orange County, Freedom for Immigrants, California Families Against Solitary Confinement, OC Civic Engagement Table, Underground Scholars and the ACLU of Southern California to learn more about the role and power of Sheriff-Coroner and DA and analyze the nexus of county law enforcement and some of the most pressing issues facing OC residents:

  • Conditions of confinement
  • Immigrant Rights
  • Homelessness
  • Prosecutorial misconduct
  • Voting rights

You have the power to select, endorse, and vote for a Sheriff and DA candidate that speaks to you and your community’s values. With involvement from people like you, voters, community organizations, opinion leaders and the media, we can check the immense powers that we put in the hands of Sheriffs and DAs.

Reserve your seats through People Power.

*The community forum will be a nonpartisan event. Sponsoring organizations do not endorse or oppose any candidate or party.*

We hope you will join us!
