Vic Mensa, Lauren Jauregui, Aloe Blacc and more lent their voices to Defund The Sheriff (The Album), a musical compilation tied to the campaign to defund the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and allocate those funds to other local resources.
JusticeLA, #SchoolsNotPrisons, Question Culture and Reform LA Jails produced Defund The Sheriff, which criminal justice speaker and musician Mike de la Rocha and formerly incarcerated Question Culture CEO Richie Reseda executive produced. The 17-track LP arrives in time with local campaigns to invest in alternatives to incarceration.
"The prison industrial complex of The Divided States of America is one of the greatest stains ever to blemish the bloody flag that is America," Mensa said in the press release. "The sheriff is little more than the militarized arm of this oppressive system; it is our duty as revolutionaries to challenge and dismantle white supremacy to the furthest extent possible within our lifetimes, by any and all means necessary."
