#NoNewYouthJail Endorsements

Organizations across King County and beyond are endorsing the demand that King County stop construction on its new youth jail and family courts project and engage with constituents about concerns regarding the project and to repurpose the site to meet basic human needs. Immigrant rights organizations, youth-serving groups, student organizations, labor unions, groups focusing on dismantling racism, and many others have endorsed a call for moratorium, and the list is growing. Read letters from King County Department of DefenseLegal Voice, OneAmerica, Columbia Legal Services and Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, about why they support a moratorium on construction. If your organization wants to endorse, fill out this form.
