Police and Prisons Committee Meeting

September 9, 2015

The next gathering of our Committee on Police & Prisons will be:

Wednesday, September 9, 6:30 p.m., location TBA.

The National Lawyers Guild San Francisco Bay Area Chapter's Committee on Police & Prisons exists to challenge oppressive practices, policies and laws of law enforcement, prisons and jails used against communities of color, prisoners, and others. It does so by supporting community activists and building member capacity to support and be a part of movements for human rights and civil liberties. It's priorities include:

Prisoner Reentry Network Provides Critical, Yet Simple Support to Those Released from Prison

Over 93% of prisoners leave prison and return to the community. In California, over 45,000 individuals leave prison each year. They are provided $200 cash, and have to use this money to pay the prison for clothing and the journey home. The Prisoner Reentry Network (PRN) was founded by NLGSF member Jared Rudolph to support these individuals, providing information and resources to individuals anticipating release from prison.
