Dear Lakeshore Family,

I hope you can join us next Wednesday for our Justice Jam Alternatives to Incarceration in Alameda County. This event will explore ways in which our community is impacted by mass incarceration and feature the many people working to decarcerate and humanize the criminal legal system. Our keynote speaker is Wendy Still, the Public Protection Advisor to Alameda County, and friend of Dave and Jo Robinson. A panel led by systems-impacted community leaders will follow featuring Region Lewis addressing current conditions at Santa Rita; John Jones III, Director of Re-entry and Violence Prevention Programs at Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency, addressing re-entry programs; and Saabir Lockett, Director of Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy, addressing  alternatives to incarceration. The program will include time for audience and presenters to engage in Q & A.

Please note that registration is required for this event, which will take place both in person and on zoom (you will receive the zoom link when you register).

This event was put together by Lakeshore and our community partners Interfaith Coalition for Justice in our Jails, Faith in Action East Bay and Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity. Below is a flier that you can share with anyone you think might be interested in attending.

I look forward to seeing you next Wednesday, either in person or on zoom!
