NO NEW JAIL – Update!

Positive Living Treatment Center was present at the No New Jail vigil and press conference held by the Orleans Parish Prison Reform Coalition (OPPRC) on Thursday, December 1st. This was the date that Gary Maynard was supposed to decide whether to build a new jail to house “special populations” — however, because of the efforts of concerned New Orleanians, he pushed the decision date back to January 3rd! This is a major victory but the fight is not yet over. We need to make a concerted effort to ensure they understand that we do NOT want a new jail being built! We need to keep our momentum up until the date of the new decision.

Check out our Nurse Manager and Administrator, Terry Mogilles, speaking at the No New Jail Press Conference below:

Keep up the fight for adequate mental health care in New Orleans!
