NEWS & STATEMENTS
FROM THE COALITION
The Re-Imagine L.A. Coalition—a coalition of more than 200 community-based organizations and individuals representing Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and low-income communities from
Measure J Steering Committee and coalition leaders, community members, and advocates will respond to Strobel’s tentative ruling and how it goes against the majority of LA County voters’ demands for changes to public safety and investment into community-based services.
The community has spoken, and more than two million of us said YES on J to invest in care, not incarceration, and to prioritize investments that meet the needs of Black, Brown, and low-income communities.
On Thursday, June 17th, 2021, L.A. County Judge Mary Strobel tentatively ruled against the will of over 2.1 million voters who overwhelmingly said yes on Measure J.
