Key Legislation needs Governor Newsom's signature!

The Multi-faith ACTION Coalition has been advocating for key bills this year that have now been sent to the Governor to sign or not sign.  We need you to reach out to the Governor and urge him to sign them.

The Governor's web site makes it difficult to email him on all of the bills at once.  We hope that you will write him urging that he sign each of the bills below and we know that you might choose one or two but not all three.

Sheriff Oversight
We would like you to urge the Governor to sign AB 1185 because it will  authorize a county to establish a sheriff oversight board to assist the board of supervisors with those duties as they relate to the sheriff, either by action of the board of supervisors or through a vote of county residents.

WE NEED MORE OVERSIGHT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT

 Food Assistance for returning residents
Please support AB 3073 because it will allow people who are incarcerated to pre-enroll for Cal-Fresh before their release. This bill will give returning residents a chance at stability by giving them assess to food.

Racial Justice Act. AB 2542

For far too long, pervasive, structural racism has led to unfair convictions and disproportionately long sentences for Black and Brown people in our communities. California convictions and sentences are routinely upheld despite:

•    Blatantly racist statements by attorneys, judges, jurors and expert witnesses; 
•    The exclusion of all, or nearly all, Black and Brown people from serving on a jury; 
•    Stark statistical evidence showing systemic bias in charging and sentencing. 

It is time to fight back and address racial discrimination. We are hoping to do just that with the California Racial Justice Act, AB 2542 BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Tell the Governor to support this bill, AB 2542
 
Email the Governor TODAY about these important bills.
