Mayor London N. Breed and Sheriff Vicki Hennessy today announced that San Francisco will become the first county in the nation to make all phone calls from jail free and end all county markups on jail store items.
Mayor Breed’s proposed budget focuses on equity and accountability, which includes investing in neighborhoods and communities that have been traditionally overlooked and are in dire need of key housing and infrastructure improvements. In her budget announcement, Mayor Breed announced that, including the proposed $600 million affordable housing bond for the November election, she has identified over $1 billion for affordable housing since taking office.
We were saddened by the news that Yogi was murdered during an alleged “prison riot” at a Sacramento maximum security prison, after Yogi’s release from decades in solitary confinement in the California prison system. Our prison movement grieves at the loss of one of its most respected and beloved foot soldiers within the belly of this fascist beast in our mutual struggles against the common enemy of the human species.
