Important Legislative Bills Need Your Action

The Multi-Faith ACTION Coalition has endorsed the RISE Act, SB 180 which repeals the three-year sentence enhancement for each prior drug conviction that is applied on top of the main sentence in a new conviction (with the exception of convictions involving a minor).  The RISE Act would help reduce overcrowding in the Contra Costa County jails which we feel is an important step toward redirecting taxpayers’ dollars to improve access to mental illness and substance abuse treatment.  Click here to see the letter sent to one Senator.
 
The Multi-Faith ACTION Coalition has endorsed the Healthy California ACT, SB 562 which will create the Healthy California program to provide comprehensive universal single-payer health care coverage and a health care cost control system for the benefit of all residents of the state. Letter of support is available through this link.
