Obviously conflicted about what to do when to ensure the desired outcome for his political career, Gov. Newsom continues to embrace political gain rather than do the right thing during trauma and death in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic. By refusing to mass release prisoners from California’s overcrowded prisons, he provides safety and wellbeing for no one, the people, all of the people, he promised to serve.
We are seeking your participation in a very unusual event – a day-long grassroots lobbying visit to the California State Capitol led by formerly incarcerated people on May 13, 2013. We invite our brothers and sisters, supporters, allies, friends and comrades to join us and support the formerly incarcerated members of our community who have been rendered silent.
