The Budget for Humanity – Join the Campaign Today!

The Budget for Humanity

California’s budget crisis provides an urgent opportunity to dramatically shift the state’s funding priorities away from policing and imprisonment and toward education, health care, jobs, and housing. Brown’s budget proposal includes yet another round of devastating cuts to vital programs.  The Budget for Humanity proposes that we can re-unite families, strengthen communities, and save billions of dollars by supporting people coming home from prison and implementing basic changes to parole policy and sentencing laws.

Our Three Main Demands:

  • Stop All Prison and Jail Construction.
  • Reduce Overcrowding and Release our Tax Dollars.
  • Stop the Cuts and Invest in Our Future.
