Alternatives to Incarceration in Alameda County, 6:30 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, March 9.
The event is designed to promote awareness about alternatives to incarceration, conditions at Santa Rita Jail, and reentry strategies. Our goal is to provide a clear, comprehensive overview of the issues, share a moral framework through which to understand what is happening, and highlight ways in which the county and community can partner to address the problems/challenges, with an overall theme of reducing the jail population at Santa Rita.
A keynote by Wendy Still, the Public Protection Advisor to Alameda County, will be followed by a panel of systems-impacted community leaders, including John Jones III, Director of Re-entry and Violence Prevention Programs, Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency, and Saabir Lockett, Director, Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy, a program of East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy. The program will include time for the audience and presenters to engage in Q & A.
Rev Allison Tanner, Pastor of Public Witness, Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church, will moderate the evening’s event.
