The scheme to break up the anti-Prop 47 coalition

Politico, California Playbook, By Emily Schultheis, Will Mccarthy, 06/10/2024

Prosecutors and retailers worked together to qualify an initiative rolling back parts of the decade-old criminal-justice reform known as Proposition 47. The big question this week: How long can rural sheriffs and the board of Walmart share a common vision for fighting crime?

Now Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democratic leaders are scheming to get the measure off the ballot by pulling the coalition partners in opposite directions. The Democratic-led Legislature is moving forward with a suite of bills addressing many of the retailers’ concerns, with a new crime category for serial theft and a crackdown on the resale of stolen goods.

LA Times, By Anabel Sosa and Keri Blakinger, June 2, 2024

One of the things Alissa Moore remembers clearly from her time in prison is how the guards taunted her when she asked for a tampon. Sometimes they’d outright refuse. Other times they’d ask her to come to a closet or a back room, where she said, on several occasions, she was sexually assaulted.

The LARRP Policy and Advocacy Committee seeks to be a resource to inform and mobilize the reentry community around critical reentry policy issues and leverage the expertise of practitioners and impacted people into the policy making process.

The Committee will develop and advocate for the passage and implementation of legislative and administrative policies that improve opportunities for formerly incarcerated or convicted people, their families and communities, and the community-based agencies that serve them.

Committee work will be guided and prioritized by 3 questions:

  • Will it have a direct impact on the lives of impacted people?
  • Does it address reentry systems or services?
  • Does it reduce racial discrimination in the criminal legal system?
Sacramento Legislation Updates

AB 1810 (Bryan) Update:

LARRP’s co-sponsored AB 1810 (Bryan), which requires more reliable and consistent access to menstrual products in jails and prisons in California, is still awaiting a final fiscal impact analysis to clarify the fiscal implications (cost of the services) before it is heard in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

We are expecting the committee hearing to be on Thursday, May 16th. While the meeting will be held in person in Sacramento, there are 2 major ways you can help us support this bill. Read More
