Grassroots Leadership, a national social justice organization, is one of the groups that signed the letter sent to lawmakers.
Executive director Bob Libal says the coalition is asking to close the jail now to save state money and possibly save lives.
“It has become abundantly clear this facility is unsafe for the people who are incarcerated in the facility and there is a growing momentum around the state and the country to close this facility.”
