Supervisor Solis believes that we need to shift the focus from punishment and incarceration to support and resources to get our justice system to work for the people and not against them.
Reducing Violence in our Communities
Hilda Solis authored a motion to reduce violence countywide by creating a survivor-centered approach that would coordinate with both County and community stakeholders to address community violence in the region. This motion increased financial investments to address this issue through the Office of Violence Prevention and to ensure that all impacted communities, including survivors of harm, have the resources they need to address community trauma.
Closing and Demolishing Men’s Central Jail
Hilda Solis advocated to create the Jail Closure Implementation Team to actualize the full closure and demolition of the Men’s Central Jail signaling a new era in LA County justice policy. Care first. Jail last.
