Action Alert
Help us pass the “Getting Home Safe Act”

On Monday, State Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) reintroduced SB 42, the “Getting Home Safe Act,” to curtail dangerous, dead-of-night releases from county jails. Skinner proposed the bill in response to the tragic death of Jessica St. Louis (who was one of her constituents). She was released from Alameda County’s Santa Rita Jail at 1:25 in the morning on July 28th, 2018.

Hiring: Youth Community Organizers, San Francisco

The Youth Community Organizer position is one of the most important positions at YWFC. As a Community Organizer, you will work directly with other youth in San Francisco that have been locked up, been involved with systems such as foster care, and that have the least opportunities to succeed. Your work will be supporting them to navigate out of the system, to figure out what they are passionate about and support them in reaching personal goals, and to use their experiences and expertise to engage in Community Organizing work so that together we can stop the criminalization and incarceration of poor young women and girls of color in San Francisco.
