Lobby Day

On March 28 over 200 former prisoners, loved ones of prisoners, and allies gathered in Sacramento for a rally and lobby day organized by Families to Amend California’s Three Strikes (FACTS) and Coalition for Effective Public Safety (CEPS). Those most affected by the prison system meet with legislators to oppose Governor Schwarzenegger’s multi-billion dollar prison expansion plan and offer solutions to the crisis and the damage it has caused our communities such as parole reform, compassionate release, treatment instead of prison for people with substance abuse issues, and abolishing life without the possibility of parole sentencing for juveniles.
