How do we support our loved ones and community members coming home from SF jails? What is this transition like? What supports already exist and how can they be strengthened?

Being released from jail can be one of the most exciting, breath-taking experiences of your life. It can also be completely terrifying, almost paralyzing. Coming out of a cage and navigating the “outside” world again, no matter how long you’ve been inside, how many times you’ve been in and out or what kind of a home you’re coming out to, is incredibly hard. It takes a strong community having your back and being there for you no matter what to really be able to transition and adjust to living outside of a cage again.

While there are many supports and services throughout San Francisco, there are still so many cracks to SF’s systems and reentry process. In order to build a self-determined, healthy, equitable and sustainable San Francisco that is free from jails and the violence of policing, we need to address and transform these cracks. We need to ensure that every person freed from county jail can connect with a community that helps people not only stay alive but thrive, providing opportunities for healing, positive transformation and self-determination.

Since January, hundreds of people have been released from SF county jails, all in grave need of support, especially navigating a COVID-crisis-SF. Severely criminalized and surveilled, people coming out of jails are of the many groups most targeted by policing. Developing abolitionist reentry support for folks is an integral part of not only fighting jailing, but also criminalization and policing. Successful Reentry must include reducing the scale and impacts of policing on individuals and entire communities while supporting people to get their immediate and long-term needs met.

Hosts: No New SF Jail  + 4 Other groups

Wednesday, July 1

6. Wednesday, 4:00pm – 6:00pm, Day of Rage No to Annexation of Palestinian Land! (Car caravan only)

Gather at:

Civic Center
San Francisco

Car caravan to:

Israeli Consulate
456 Montgomery St.
SF

Due to the sudden and dramatic spike in Covid cases in California, event organizers of the 7/1 Day of Rage have decided to make the primary focus of this action to be a car caravan only.

We apologize to those that don’t have access to a vehicle, however we want to ensure the utmost health and safety of our community first and foremost. We are making arrangements for an alternate online rally that you can plug into remotely.

The San Francisco/Bay Area Chapter of Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition and the Palestinian Youth Movement and the Palestine Action Network call upon all Palestinians and supporters of freedom, equality, and justice – in Palestine and around the world, to protest the planned annexation of more Palestinian land. We call on the Palestinian community, and those engaged in indigenous/anti-colonial, anti-racist/anti-white supremacist struggles against state violence and racial oppression, to link arms and struggle together in an act of international solidarity!

On July 1st, Israel is set to begin the formal annexation of 30% of the West Bank. The West Bank has been occupied since 1967 and the settlements that exist there already are illegal by international law. These further encroachments on Palestinian land are unacceptable. Annexation is nothing new in Occupied Palestine; the entire Zionist project has depended on land and resource theft, the displacement of indigenous Palestinians, military occupation, imprisonment, and colonial violence. The continued expansions of Jewish-only settlements on occupied land, the US embassy move to Jerusalem, the so-called “Deal of the Century”, and the formalization of annexation are the latest manifestations of Zionist colonial rule.
