A society that designates its county jails as the largest mental health hospital for people in need is foretelling of an immoral society with backwards priorities. Instead of caring, loving and healing treatment for people in need, we are incarcerating, dehumanizing and criminalizing an entire marginalized community. Enough is enough!
Join us as we hear from people who have struggled first-hand with mental illness and are now engaged in educational advocacy, such as combating mental illness stigmas. Hear from two student activists Joshua Ramirez of USC and Hansook Oh of CSUN.
More speakers to be announced later.
This event is free but donations are encouraged.
Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
