Shut Down TDC Teach-In

  • Corpus Christy Community Center 2022 Saint Bernard Avenue New Orleans, LA, 70116 United States (map)

On November 29th, OPPRC delivered a letter to the City demanding that Councilmembers follow through on the promise to pass an overcrowding ordinance. This ordinance would release people who pose a low risk to public safety from jail once capacity is reached. Thus, preventing the problem of overcrowding.

Six months have passed and this ordinance still has not been introduced. In the meantime, the Temporary Detention Center was unlawfully reopened and someone died in the facility. Come learn about the unlawful operation of TDC and what you can do to oppose it!
