Our coalition has a different vision for California, a vision rooted in liberation. We envision changes that will bring people home, dismantle systems of imprisonment, and support true community health and prosperity.
In 2016 we have grown stronger than ever. This year Governor Brown proposed $270 million in jail construction funding through our state budget. We made our voices heard by demanding that our decision makers say NO MORE to jail funding. Our people power persuaded the Senate and Assembly Budget Subcommittees to reject the state funding for new jails. Unfortunately, the Governor signed slipped in the jail funding in the final budget, showing support for more incarceration.
