Newsom plan will shut rural California prison and lose jobs – Los Angeles Times

Nicole Porter, director of advocacy for the Sentencing Project, which supports reducing incarceration, said the state should help communities hurt by the closing of prisons.

“It’s the state’s responsibility to help guide a conversation around redevelopment. That community’s economic success should not be predicated on being a human warehouse that disappears people from their homes,” she said. “The state created this problem, and it’s the state’s responsibility to address it.”
