EGI Team meets with Nora Vargas

Chairwoman Vargas to Support Ending Girls Incarceration initiative

EGI meets with Vargas

Exciting news from Mid-City CAN's Ending Girls Incarceration (EGI) campaign: Juvenile Justice Organizer Manuel along with EGI team members Jasmin, Emilio and Policy Advisor Belen met with San Diego County Chairwoman Nora Vargas on March 6 and the supervisor agreed to be a champion for the initiative! "We are looking forward to working with Chairwoman Vargas and her staff on supporting the Ending Girls Incarceration initiative at the county level," said Manuel.

The EGI team had two asks for Chairwoman Vargas:  

The first was "Will you be a champion for Ending Girls Incarceration and prioritize the formation of a task force that incorporates community representation (Service providers, advocates and youth with lived experience as well as their families)? 

The second: Will you introduce a board letter directing probation to commit to the data transparency and establishing the task force?"

Vargas said yes to the first ask and our EGI team and the chair will work together to create a board letter.

Great progress made by the EGI team! Thank you Chairwoman Vargas for being a champion for EGI!
