(1) All Eyes on the Sheriff Rally & March!
Turn out to the All Eyes On The Sheriff mobilization on Tuesday, Oct 2nd, for a rally and march calling for FULL accountability and transparency of the Alameda Sheriff's Department!

Meet at the Glenn Dyer Detention Center, 50 6th St in downtown Oakland, where we will march to the Alameda County Administration Building.

In the span of just 6 days, the Alameda County Sheriff's Department has been exposed for:

Illegally recording attorney & youth-client privileged conversations!

Brutally assaulting a 76-year old disabled woman for jay walking!

Forcing a pregnant homeless woman to give birth alone while she lay in a cold, dirty concrete solitary confinement cell after guards ignored her screams for hours!

Since June alone, there have been 3 in-custody deaths associated with Santa Rita Jail. There are are now a total of 34 in-custody deaths that have happened since 2013 under Sheriff Ahern's management. Blatant human rights abuses are so rampant that Alameda County now leads the region in civil rights legal settlements. All while the Alameda County Board of Supervisors continues to increase the Sheriff's budget - now a massive $444 million - while the jail population that has decreased by nearly half in the last ten years

Join us to demand that the Board of Supervisors authorize an independent audit and full transparency and accountability of the Alameda Sheriff's Department. #AuditAhern NOW!! Please help share and spread the word!

Opinion: Re-elect DA O'Malley, the only qualified candidate
As for O’Malley, although she is clearly the superior candidate, there’s no excuse for her decision to accept $10,000 in campaign contributions from Fremont’s police union while her office investigated three cops’ actions in two fatal shootings last year.

Her decision to ask the state attorney general to review her findings in one of the cases doesn’t excuse her acceptance of the money. And then telling us that the decision to keep the money was made in discussions with her campaign advisors reveals a total abdication of her personal responsibility.

Vera Institute Of Justice Is Offering Legal Help To Fight Deportations
Using public funding to aid immigrants facing deportation helps build trust, increases public safety and keeps families together, says Turner.

The Vera Institute of Justices, the organization that launched SAFE, created the network after studying the impact of the New York Immigrant Family Unity Project (NYIFUP). NYIFUP started in 2014 and has represented immigrants facing deportation who otherwise didn’t have access to legal resources.

According to the study, Vera found that immigrants that had adequate representation in court had a higher chance of winning their case before an immigration judge. Forty-eight percent of immigrants who had proper representation in court were successful in their cases – an increase of 1,100 percent. It’s a stark contrast to the four percent success rate typical in similar cases.

The SAFE Cities Network includes:

Atlanta, GA, Austin, TX, Baltimore, MD, Chicago, IL, Columbus, OH, Dane County in Wisconsin, Oakland/Alameda County in California, Prince George’s County in Maryland, Sacramento, CA, San Antonio, TX and Santa Ana, CA.

Nancy O’Malley, Pamela Price debate for Alameda County’s top prosecutor’s seat | Oakland North
During a town hall meeting on Wednesday night at Merritt College, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and Pamela Price, who is running to replace her, presented their platforms on convicting juvenile offenders, racial socioeconomic disparities in the criminal justice system, and law enforcement accountability. Both O’Malley and Price took different stands on these topics, but also spoke passionately about their common goal: to bring justice if they win the race for District Attorney next June.

“Justice done right is what we need in Alameda County,” Price said in her opening statement as she emphasized need for change in the District Attorney’s Office. “We must create, we can create, a new culture of transparency and fairness in the District Attorney’s Office.”

Meanwhile, O’Malley highlighted the strategies that her office uses and the new programs that it provides. “The district attorney’s job is to seek justice and that is at the core of every single little thing that I do. It is certainly in the core of what I do and every prosecutor, investigator and person who works in my office,” O’Malley said.
