All Eyes On the Sheriff @ Board of Supervisors Chamber
Nov 21 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Over the past 10 years, the Alameda County jail population has decreased by half—so why is the sheriff’s budget increasing? Under the sheriff’s “watch” there have been increasing deaths in the jails, abuse of people by sheriff’s deputies, and support of white supremacists from his department. Yet his budget continues to grow. Meanwhile, people in power aren’t investing in the resources our communities really need—like jobs, healthcare, housing, education, and more. Turn up with us before the Board of Supervisors meeting to tell county officials we demand transparency and accountability … Continued
