This budget cycle Initiate Justice, a member of CURB, worked to monitor the implementation of Proposition 57 and to demand a drastic expansion of earned time credits for people participating in positive programming. We need you to take action to support us today!
Initiate Justice is a grassroots organization based in Oakland, California, comprised of people who are directly impacted by incarceration. Our work is committed to supporting evidence-based policies that focus on reducing the prison population while ensuring our communities are safe.
We, like CURB, see the passage of Prop. 57 as an opportunity to get our loved ones home through the expansion of earned time credits. On Friday, March 24, 2017, CDCR published proposed Proposition 57 Emergency Regulations on the Office of Administrative Law’s website. This initiated a 5-day public comment period in which members of the public can send a written response to the draft regulations – a comment period which ends tomorrow,Wednesday March 29!
