1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Place
11:00am – Meet on the Polk St. steps of City Hall
11:30am – Ceremony begins
Open to the public
Mayor Lee has been decidedly absent as we have sought dialogue with him about Chief Suhr’s inability to run a police force. Chief Suhr has created a culture of racism and brutalization that gave those five officers permission to assassinate Mario Woods. If he will not fire Chief Suhr, who refuses to step down, then we will let him know that he can go too.
The demand of the re-elected mayor: Replace Police Chief Greg Suhr ”
Wear black – dress nicely.
J 8, Friday, 12:45pm, Protest Governor Brown’s PROPOSED BUDGET FOR NEW JAIL – Press Conference
355 McAllister (across from Civic Center Plaza)
Governor’s budget reneges on promise for sustainable prison population reduction, funds new jail construction
Gov. Brown’s 2016-17 budget projects future prison population growth, extends the use of in-state and out-of-state contract beds, spends $250 on new jail expansion, refurbishes the Norco prison that has been slated for closure for years, and lacks any reforms that would meaningfully reduce the prison population. Rather than investing in vital community-based programs, the budget focuses on in-custody services.
