WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

California’s Proposition 47, passed in the November 4th election, takes a big step toward ending mass incarceration and the unfair sentencing in California. Nonviolent crimes previously considered felonies, like drug possession or petty theft, will now be considered misdemeanors, leading to fewer people being convicted of felonies each year and saving hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars. The savings will be directed to a new state fund to reduce school dropout rates, mental health care and drug treatment programs. This is a big win for California and a major defeat for for-profit prison industry.
