The Audit Ahern Coalition that’s based in the Ella Baker Center and includes several other organizations is holding a Zoom meeting to rethink our approach and perhaps launch new directions for our efforts to do something about: our terrible County Sheriff Ahern, his bloated budget and latest successful move to get a lot more money for incarceration; the human rights abuses by his office; the poor conditions, large number of deaths, and Covid-19 crisis at the County Jail (Santa Rita); the need for more decarceration, diversion programs, and community mental health and substance abuse resources, etc.
The group may be shifting focus to the extent of changing the name of the coalition away from “Audit Ahern.”
Here’s the info from the coalition:
“We will be having our general coalition meeting next Tuesday, 5/26. This meeting will be open to new organizers who want to join our decarceration/ jail divestment efforts and can commit to adding capacity to the coalition. Will send out the agenda to our coalition by Monday.
You will need to register in order to access this meeting. Please register.
