SIGN NOW TO MOVE $18 MILLION FROM CUFFS TO CARE!
In a time of public health crisis and a $40 million budget deficit, it is unconscionable for the City of Atlanta to spend $18 million to lock people in cages for jaywalking and disorderly conduct. We can, in no way, allow for this jail - and potential hotspot - to exist any longer in our community, wasting desperately needed resources, criminalizing people for being poor, and making us all less safe.
Sign our petition TODAY to move $18 million from cuffs to care!
The City of Atlanta has allocated $18 million dollars in the proposed 2020-21 city budget to the Atlanta City Detention Center, a building that sits mostly empty and is slated for closure & repurposing into a Center for Wellness & Freedom thanks to community organizing power!
