No New Jail

The Smart Justice Spokane coalition, of which PJALS is a founding member, has released a letter to the Spokane County Board of Commissioners. We wrote to raise concerns we have with part of the current process that the County and City have undertaken to evaluate Spokane’s criminal justice system and the potential for replacing the current Spokane County jail. Our community must ensure that the goals of reducing the jail population and reducing racial disparities are fully realized before it can begin real planning for any future jail project.

Will trust all of you, too long for me to read now, had hoped for a shorter version, 1-2 pages that I could send out.

I certainly support this letter, Suzi

On behalf of the St. Clare Ecumenical Catholic Communion of Spokane, we fully support the efforts of the Smart Justice Spokane coalition work to support our community’s call to end mass incarceration and systemic racism in our Spokane County criminal justice system.
