Timothy Lutz has been appointed as Sacramento County's Director of Health Services - read the County press release here
A note from SJPC - the County had an opportunity here to instead hire an extremely qualified Black doctor with tons of professional & lived experience, but they went with the white guy with a Master's in business administration....business as usual
A message from our friends at Decarcerate Sacramento:
"Join Decarcerate Sacramento and hundreds of other community members on Dec 7th at 2pm as we stop an upcoming jail expansion here in Sacramento. We are going to need all hands on deck to say a mental health jail is not how we meaningfully invest in our Sacramento community, and that folx who suffer from severe mental health crisis should not be treated inside the jail!!! In fact demand reinvestment in the services and facilities needed to prevent someone going through a crisis from ever ending up there in the first place."
Follow Decarcerate Sac's instagram - linked here - for updates, and as always, SJPC will continue to keep you informed!
