May 2019 - SURJ Legislative Calling Campaign
Start: Thursday, May 23, 2019•11:00 AM • Pacific Time (US & Canada) (GMT-08:00)
May is a do-or-die month for criminal justice bills in the California legislature. Please help us double down in our efforts to pass a suite of bills prioritized by our POC partners that will reduce the number of people in our jails and prisons, restore rights and employment opportunities for current and formerly incarcerated persons, and reduce sentence enhancements.
Legislators need to hear from us.
Any bills that don’t pass by the end of May are tabled for the year.
Join SURJ Bay Area for a statewide week of action, May 23rd-30th, in which we commit to making calls to legislators every day -- - we’ll provide the scripts and the targets, you provide the calls! Sign up here.
