Victory in Sacramento! Brown signed SB 219!

Dear Supporter,

ACPVictoryOn Sunday, we celebrated a major victory for incarcerated people and their families: Governor Brown signed SB 219, a bill co-sponsored by CURB and Justice Now that will expand access to the Alternative Custody Program!

We couldn’t have done it without you

Your letters, emails, phone calls, and tweets sent a clear message that Californians are determined to fight the devastation of imprisonment, and are willing to take action to support incarcerated people and their families.

Thanks to your fighting spirit, more people will be able to finish their sentences in the community so they can care for their children and dependent family members.

We hope the momentum created by this victory can help us continue our fight to reduce the number of prisons and jails and the number of people incarcerated, and invest in strong and healthy communities.

We hope this victory can be another stepping stone in a new path forward for California.
