One aspect of our campaign to stop construction of the women’s jail in LA County is to fight on environmental grounds, citing issues and hazards with its construction and operation in the areas of water supply and quality, air quality, and hazardous waste. Critical Resistance, a member of LA No More Jails, solicited testimony and analysis from contacts who are currently imprisoned in the Lancaster area because we are gravely concerned over the violence of the proposed jail and the risks of Valley Fever in that area, including for those who would be imprisoned at Mira Loma. Check out their responses.
