Build the People, Not the Jail

Join Madison Area DSA to halt the jail expansion and consolidation project!

People who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are disproportionately separated from their families and communities and locked away in the Dane County Jail. The pandemic has shown us that Dane County is able to reduce its jail population far below previous numbers. Instead of spending hundreds of millions of dollars on more space to lock people away, we want the County Board to spend our money building up the community. To fight the jail expansion is to prioritize the well being of POC in Dane county. We do not want to expand capacity in our jails - we want to keep them to a minimum while providing people in Dane County with the resources they need to thrive.
