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