SIGN OUR PETITION TO STOP PRISON AND JAIL EXPANSION IN CALIFORNIA!
In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered the state of California to reduce its prison population by 33,000 prisoners. Yet, the State of California and over 30 counties are moving forward with plans to spend tens of billions of dollars to build thousands of new prison and jail beds across the state instead of mandating alternatives to imprisonment, reducing prison and jail populations and eradicating draconian sentencing laws. Further prison and jail expansion would be a human travesty and an expensive waste of resources.
California does not need and cannot afford more prisons and jails.
