Does the prohibition on law enforcement also apply to this role? I believe the measure j language was explicit about not having law enforcement representatives in the advisory group.

Sergio Rodriguez, He/His, Vera Institute
01:34:29
To ensure equity and proper democratization of this process, I think it's important to accommodate folks who aren't here due to sickness. While I honor the folks who are here and are able to be here, it is imperative to note that many people here have claimed Bamby as a reputable candidate and while she cannot be here due to the essence of this pandemic, we must find a creative solution to have her participate in this election that doesn't depend on her answering her phone at this moment.
Sophia Li she/her

The ATI Report, Care First, Jails Last had over 100+ recommendations, and the 26 Foundational Recommendations that are being referenced were the ones that were identified as the ones that should first be implemented to move to a CARE FIRST approach. Here’s the approach: https://lacalternatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/ATI_Full_Report_single_pages.pdf

Confusion, the people voted, measure J and ATI are two different sources of funding set in place to address the multitude of issues that exist in our communities and the justice system. We need to appropriately appropriate that money accordingly.

For example, this committee could decide to recommend that funds go to a third party such as a foundation partner who could distribute to groups who have a harder time contracting through county.
Liz Sunwoo (she/her) - Facilitator
