We advocate for policies, budgets and administrative practices that prioritize what works for those most harmed and least helped.
Since our founding, we co-authored and co-led the successful Yes on Proposition 47 ballot initiative campaign in 2014 (c4), Yes on Proposition 57 ballot initiative campaign in 2016 (c4) and #BailReformCA legislative campaign in 2018. These efforts sought to reduce incarceration and increase rehabilitation and investments into community prevention and treatment. We have also advocated for trauma recovery centers — growing them across California from just 1 to 12 across the state since we began — and dozens of other legislative reforms.
We focus our advocacy in the state Capitol on reducing unnecessary incarceration and expanding rehabilitation, expanding trauma recovery and victim services, and reducing the barriers people living with past convictions face.
