TELL YOUR SENATOR: VOTE YES ON AB 2542

After hundreds of emails, phone calls, and hours of tireless advocacy, the California Racial Justice Act (AB 2542) has passed appropriations and is headed for a senate floor vote. If you took action earlier this month and urged your senator to vote YES on AB 2542 – Thank you! Will you help us finish the job and pass the Racial Justice Act?

For far too long, pervasive, structural racism has led to unfair convictions and disproportionately long sentences for Black and Brown people in our communities. Courts only reverse convictions in the most extreme cases. In most cases, the courts don't act, or worse yet, condemn discrimination but call it “harmless error.” Racial discrimination in our criminal legal system is not inevitable, it is not unfixable, and it is not harmless. The Racial Justice Act is up for votes and we need your help – act now and tell your senator to vote YES on the Racial Justice Act.
