NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A group opposing expansion plans for Orleans Parish jail will host a town hall meeting today.

The Orleans Parish Prison Reform Coalition wants jail leaders to adapt the current facility to inmates with special needs instead of expanding.

The city of New Orleans is under a December 1 deadline to develop a plan to improve conditions for inmates with special needs.

The meeting is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Corpus Christi Epiphany Catholic Church at 2022 St. Bernard Avenue.
