SACRAMENTO- Music artists are often at the forefront of the push for social change. Ty Dolla $ign helps kick off the #SchoolsNotPrisons tour on Saturday, August 6 at Sacramento City College. #SchoolsNotPrisons is a public education campaign by Californians for Safety and Justice that is raising awareness about who California sends to prison, the cost and how that spending affects investments in education, health and other community needs.
The importance of young people voting will also be stressed. Local artists will also be featured at each of the 11 tour stops that include Oakland, Stockton, San Diego and Fresno. The tour also will include performances inside three adult and youth correctional facilities. The free Sacramento City College show is set to run 5:30 to 9:00 p.m.
