The Restorative Community Coalition looks out for everyone. Most recently we are looking out for our members and allies whose image & copyrighted materials were co-opted for the Pro-Jail Tax movement. On October 24th, 2017 and image of a 2015 Anti-Jail Tax Rally was posted to the Whatcom Jail Facebook page with alterations depicting those same protestors as for the 2017-1 Jail Tax. Those depicted immediately called for the removal of the picture to the page & sent in complaints to Facebook. The image was removed and an “apology” issued. That was not good enough for our Board. On October 31, 2017 we issued a Request for Full Disclosure to Sheriff Bill Elfo.
