When The Coalition to End Sheriff Violence in LA Jails first started two and a half years ago we had a vision that the Black and Brown people who bear the brunt of sheriff violence would have the power to end human rights abuses in the largest jail system in the world.
For two years we have built a movement of formerly incarcerated people, their families, and communities to push the county to implement independent civilian oversight of the Sheriff’s Department. Story after story of brutality by deputies have been transformed into a real victory for our loved ones on the inside and on the streets of LA.
Today we get to claim our DIGNITY and our POWER!!!
