Recent news

UPDATE- Fayetteville NC COVID-19 Detention Center mitigation !!

UPDATE: THANK YOU TO ALL who signed and posted the COVID-19 petition‼️ As a Community YOU are the voice of the marginalized, underserved and endangered. Thank you for having HEART enough to care ��� Here a few developments:
- The GAPS �
‼️ The DA and CCSO have still not furnished a copy of a mitigation policy indicating coordination on bond modification
‼️ Residents are still being arrested for Failure to Appear and other clearly non-violent offenses; Reports that FPD are not consistent in use of PPE (masks or gloves)
‼️ STILL No public plan for screening current detention center population for aged, immunodeficient etc. release candidates
‼️ No response from the DA, Sheriff to a round of formal requests for information PACT made last Thursday & Friday (not even a copy of the current mitigation plan)
‼️ No public plan for safely housing released population during pandemic
- Progress ��
- Indication from DA Billy West that there is behind the scenes work: " daily jail court for first appearances, bonds, and pleas for those in custody, daily review of those in custody to address bond and possible disposition of their cases, suggesting unsecured bonds for non violent low level offenses, and suggesting citations and summons in lieu of arrest in appropriate cases."
- A number of elected officials have engaged or expressed concern about this urgent issue to include: Comm. Evans, Mayor Pro Tem Jensen, CM Wright, CM Ingram, CM Banks-McLaughlin & CM Dawkins (Thank you for giving a damn!��)
- More than 200 signatures on the petition and a coalition of Organizations formed to demand a mitigation plan !! Organizing Against Racism (O.A.R.): Cumberland County, NC/ LGBT + Hearts Place/ Recidivism Reduction Educational Program Services (RREPS)/Stop killingUs.org/ Butterflies and Pearls/ Black Voters Matter/ Unheard Voices Unite, Inc./ Lock Nation Inc./ Justice Ministration/ Acres of Diamondz Financial Services/ Save Our Sons (S.O.S)/ Exodus Foundation.org/ Angaza Laughlinhouse/ Emancipate NC. - Petition was delivered electronically yesterday to County Commissioners, City Council, Judges, DA and Sheriff

Please keep engaging on this.... We still don't have adequate or codified POLICY in hand. People are STILL being arrested unnecessarily and placed in danger. Measures to reduce the current detainee population are, at this point, minimal. Engage your elected officials, Judges, the DA and Sheriff on this until vulnerable members of our Community are spoken for and protected! #allofusornoneofus
