Earlier this year, Governor Brown decided that instead of restoring much needed funding to California's education and safety net programs, he'd put a billion dollars in reserve for a rainy day.
Now, he has release a plan to pump over a billion dollars over the next three years into the prison system. We simply can't let this happen -- it will devastate our communities as it further drains them of resources.
Join us in sending a message to your California State Senator and Assemblymember to vote NO on any prison expansion.
Ella Baker Center is working to stop the expansion with Californians United for a Responsible Budget and other organizations.
Can you join Ella Baker Center at an emergency rally on the steps of the capitol in Sacramento next Tuesday, August 26th? Hope you can make it!
