Tweet your support to reduce the prison population today!

#BringOurEldersHome

Supporter,

Tomorrow is the big day!

On Tuesday, April 7th, all of CURB’s sponsored bills will be heard in the Senate and Assembly Public Safety Committees. We trust that our legislators will make the right decisions on our behalf but, every now and again, we all need a little encouragement.

Let California legislators know that they have the public’s full support:

Tweet your support for Elder Parole (SB 224) now.

Tweet your support for Credit Incentives (AB 512) now.

Tweet your support for the Alternative Custody Program (SB 219) now.

The support and influence you provide is crucial to pushing our state representatives to reduce the prison population and invest in a durable and sustainable solution.

We believe in programs and services for all. We believe in reunifying families torn apart by state violence. We believe our elders have a right to live with dignity. And, through your support of these legislative bills, we can #BringOurEldersHome, #KeepFamiliesTogether and build strong communities. Thank you,

Diana Zuñiga
Interim Statewide Coordinator
Californians United for a Responsible Budget

P.S. If you can’t join us at the State Capitol tomorrow, you can tune in to the hearings via Cal Channel here.
