Political Education Campaign
Our political education campaign provides background information on elected officials and how Bay Area residents can get involved. That means giving marginalized communities a voice through knowledge and self-empowerment. 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.
We will be having monthly workshops for the political education campaign from September 2021 to February 2022. We encourage you to utilize our resources from these events to have conversations with your own internal networks / organizations about these valuable and impactful topics.
On October 7th, our political education campaign officially launched.
District Attorney Accountability
On October 21st, our first poli-ed workshop discussed the District Attorney's role, impact, and highlighted stories from those directly impacted by these decisions.
On November 19th, we had an impactful workshop that aims to support formerly incarcerated individuals and first-time voters understand who can vote, how to register, and valuable informed decisions.
Know the Sheriff
On January 25th, we were joined by various impactful individuals from organizations representing diverse communities in discussing the role of the Sheriff, their budget, and the Babu Settlement.
Justice Reinvestment Coalition of Alameda County invites you to utilize these resources within your own communities to forgo the extension of knowledge of our citizens.
