Last month, California voters made history by passing several propositions and measures to restore rights and self-determination to communities impacted by incarceration, while also rejecting racist legislation that would have rolled back decades of progress in the movement against prisons and policing. Join us for a post-election debrief with grassroots organizers who led us to these victories by building power in communities throughout the state. We will hear about the historic passing of Proposition 17, which will restore voting rights to people impacted by incarceration; how the defeat of Proposition 25 allows us to fight for real pretrial justice, what is on the horizon in Los Angeles County with the passing of Measure J and new District Attorney GeorgeGascónand more. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to be in partnership and dialogue with these amazing movement leaders!
