Reform Jails and Community Reinvestment Initiative

Permanently reduce the population of people cycling into and out of jail that are experiencing mental health, drug dependency, or chronic homelessness issues.

The Reform LA Jails committee, led by Patrisse Khan Cullors–veteran organizer, Black Lives Matter co-founder–fought alongside a  committed coalition of citizens, community leaders, businesses, and organizations steeped in this work in order to bring the Reform Jails and Community Reinvestment Initiative to fruition.

If the LA county-wide initiative passes, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Civilian Oversight Commission will be granted subpoena and investigative power to effectively and independently investigate misconduct; the commission will also have the power to develop a plan that will reduce jail populations and redirect the cost savings into alternatives to incarceration.
