Building the power of communities

A project of Tides Advocacy, our organization is leading a movement to decarcerate the largest jail population in the United States: the LA County jail system, by reducing the power and scope of the judiciary, law enforcement and the legal injustice system. We do this by fighting for a fair and transparent pretrial process, State and local budgets that reflect our values, life-affirming alternatives to incarceration, and judicial accountability.
