Help Your Community Benefit from Proposition 47!
1) Organize a Record Change Event in Your Community
Record Change events – no matter how big or small – are an effective way to help individuals rebuild their lives after a criminal conviction and ensure all eligible Californians can access the benefits from Proposition 47.
Check out our “How to Organize A Record Change Toolkit” which provides the necessary tools to help you or your organization organize a record change clinic including templates, resources, and information on Proposition 47 and other Clean Slate Remedies.
One of Proposition 47’s most promising opportunities is the reallocation of corrections funding to crime prevention and treatment. The law allocates savings in state prison costs to mental health, drug treatment programs, education, and trauma recovery services.
Advocacy on the local and state level is needed to ensure that savings in the state or county justice systems are reallocated to community-based treatment and prevention. Sign up to get updates about Proposition 47 or contact us at [email protected].
