May 14th CURB Statewide Day of Action

In last week’s hearing Senator Hancock said “we did not want to replicate our prison system jail by jail.” The Senate opposed Governor Brown’s budget proposal to grant an additional $500 million to expand jails and instead voted to provide this additional funding for county construction projects which could include transitional housing, day reporting centers, mental health and substance abuse treatment facilities and jails. The Senate Budget vote is a step towards funding alternatives, not jails. To fully cancel this jail construction funding we must keep the pressure on!

The Governor will release his May Budget Revise the week of May 12th and CURB are joining with the California Partnership for a Statewide Day of Action!

Please join us for a Press Conferences and Rally about the Governor’s May Revise Budget on Wednesday, May 14th to highlight the need to invest in Californians, not in more prisons and jails!
