DO NOT SUPPORT the Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act

California is facing a serious threat to the years of progress our state has made toward fixing the state’s broken criminal justice system. A new ballot initiative, the “Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act” will increase taxpayer spending on prisons, increase incarceration rates, and roll-back important reforms achieved in the last decade. This measure, backed by key law enforcement associations that have spent years opposing justice reform is the subject of an active signature-gathering operation in the field and it is designed to undermine key aspects of Prop 47 and Prop 57 and Public Safety Realignment.

Do not support the ballot initiative. Also, make sure your city council members are not supporting resolutions in support of this dangerous measure. Let’s keep California moving in the direction of care not cages, people over profit, and public safety that provides the true needs of the most vulnerable communities.
