The People’s Proposition is a community initiative to “Bring Our Prisoners Home.” Across California, prisoners, family members and advocates are collecting thousands of signatures demanding that the new Governor work to:
- Abolish Three Strikes and End the Illegal No-Parole Policy
- Stop the Revolving Door and Discrimination against former prisoners
- Implement Real Compassionate Release, and
- Focus on Treatment not Incarceration.
The petition also calls on Schwarzenegger to participate in community organized forums throughout California about the People’s Proposition and the devastating effects of incarceration on people’s lives. On December 10th, Human Rights Day, the petitions will be delivered to the Governor’s offices in Eureka, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco. To become involved in this critical effort call 415-255-7036 ext. 339 or write CCWP. Look for a full report on December 10th actions in the next Fire Inside.
