Feb. 16, 2022 - Monthly Community Forum - Fighting for Voting Rights Then and Now

Nov. 17 - Noon to 2:00 pm
A Virtual Community Forum--Public Safety: Beyond Police and Prisons

Does putting people in prison make our community safer? Can our jails return residents who are healthy, housed, and able to get jobs?
How can we rebuild our criminal justice system to transform a punitive system into a humane, restorative justice system?
How might our public safety agencies and non-profits create “good neighbors”?
Santa Barbara County will be opening its new jail in Santa Maria in December. Should the main jail in South County be rehabilitated?
The speakers discussed what our Public Defender and Probation Department are doing to dismantle racism, provide “holistic defense,” and provide safe alternatives to life behind bars.

Tracy Macuga - Public Defender
La Mer Kyle-Griffiths - Assistant Public Defender
