Sponsored by No New Youth Jail Seattle

Join the No New Youth Jail Coalition for a press conference for the latest updates on the fight to stop the jail and to hear from community partners coming forward to endorse the People’s Moratorium on construction. As King County continues to accelerate construction, nearly 100 organizations are coming together to tell Dow Constantine to stop construction. It’s time to reimagine the design of the building to meet actual community needs. In this moment of crisis, we will come together to remind Dow that keeping families together must include all families – including King County’s families of color most impacted by youth caging.

Accessibility:
We will be gathering outside the youth jail on wheelchair accessible sidewalks. Nearest bathrooms are located in close by coffee shops. Event is family friendly.
