The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is converting Valley State Prison for Women into a men’s prison in response to a U.S. Supreme Court order to reduce overcrowding. Instead of releasing people, they are squeezing over 1,000 women and transgender people into the two remaining women’s prisons. This has aggravated overcrowding (bringing Central California Women’s Facility’s population dangerously close to 4000), created dangerous conditions and health care is getting much worse. What’s more, they have added yet another men’s prison to their inhumane system.
COME SHOW SUPPORT FOR ALL PEOPLE LOCKED UP IN CHOWCHILLA’S PRISONS!
TELL THE FEDERAL JUDGES OVERCROWDING MUST STOP NOW!
BRING OUR LOVED ONES HOME!
