The Interfaith Coalition for Justice in our Jails grew out of the Live Free table of Faith in Action East Bay (FIAEB) The Live Free Table wrote a report titled
In 2019, encouraged by formerly incarcerated advocates, we began a campaign among 11 congregations to advocate for Medi-Cal reinstatement for those whose insurance is suspended or terminated
while they are in jail.
We formed the Interfaith Coalition for Justice in our Jails to expand our membership and our voice
in pursuit of that goal.
We seek to hold the Alameda County Sheriff's Office and the Board of Supervisors accountable
for conditions in the jail.
Today the table of FIAEB has about 40 congregations and 15 schools as members - all of which share
a passion for racial justice and economic equity.
ICJJ is proud to be an independent table of FIAEB.
