No Budget Grab for Prisons! Urge the Assembly to Vote NO on SB 105!

The California State Assembly is about to vote on SB 105, aka billions for new prisons and jails for Californians.  More than that, they’re voting on our priorities: as a state, do we stand for our children, our future, and the common good? Or do we stand for punishment and racism?

Click here to make sure your elected official knows what side you’re on – and that you’re watching them.

After you send your email message please make a quick call to your Assemblymember and ask them to vote NO on SB 105. Their phone number will appear on the right hand side.

Script:  My name is __________ and I am a constituent of Assemblymember________.  I am calling today to urge you to vote NO on SB 105 and stand for real solutions that reduce the prison population and won’t cost us hundreds of millions of dollars that we should be spending on restoring health and human service programs and education.
