In October, the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) held its first of seven public meetings on the implementation of Prop 47 and how communities want to invest the savings.
The next four public meetings have been scheduled in Fresno, San Bernardino, LA and San Diego, and they need to hear from you!
This is the same Board that has doled out over $2 billion dollars for jail construction. We must ensure that these new jails don’t absorb any of the Prop 47 savings.
It is important that the BSCC hear a unified message from communities throughout the state: We want care in the community, not in jails; we want our people deciding what happens with the Prop 47 savings, not law enforcement.
Please share this meeting information with folks you know who might be interested in attending these mobilizations.
