Voting Rights Action
LA Voters, we have a sheriff runoff!
In June, we went to the polls and voted for many electeds, including the LA Sheriff. The sheriff holds a tremendous amount of power with responsibilities such as providing patrol services for 153 incorporated communities and 42 cities; courthouse security for the Superior Court of LA; 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, Ward AME Church, 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, September 15, 2018 from 10a-12p at Ward AME Church. This is a great opportunity for the LA community to come meet and listen to the candidates.
Simultaneously, the Youth Justice Coalition will be holding a legal clinic to service our reentry community members.
LA 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!
