Building the power of communities

A project of Tides Advocacy,  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 & transparent pretrial process, state & local budgets that reflect our values, life-affirming alternatives to incarceration, and judicial accountability.
