The Justice Reinvestment Coalition of Alameda County (JRC/AC) is launching a political education campaign #KnowAlamedaCounty to educate youth and the Bay Area population to actively participate in local and national government decisions. We want to get Alameda County residents excited to make a difference and for them to make decisions based on adequate knowledge of government regulations. Our goal is to empower the people of Alameda County, particularly youth, to get involved and be aware of the positive changes they can incite within their communities.
