News Flash!!  Pleased to share that our partners in Richmond scored a HUGE VICTORY today.  At issue was how to spend $19 million in realignment dollars to county.  On one side was the Sheriff who wanted $3 million of those funds to expand jail capacity** and the other side was the community, with leadership from formerly incarcerated people themselves, saying those funds need to go toward critical re-entry services and supports.  After a long and sustained campaign, the Sheriff backed off of his plans.  I’m confident that our investments in building the leadership, partnerships and power evident in the campaign made a critical difference today.

Couldn’t say it better:

At the close of the meeting State Senator Loni Hancock emphatically stated, "This has been an extraordinary meeting, and I hope everyone realizes what a tribute to democracy this whole process has been. I am in awe of you guys, I'm in awe of this community and the testimony you've given.  And the fact that it is really coming together with such promise for developing a whole new system.  The whole promise of AB109 is not to replicate the failed system of the state level, but to build a new system that will break the cycle of crime and poverty and violence and put people on another track.  Everybody talks about it almost nobody has done it successfully, and it sounds to me like Contra Costa is on the road to doing it successfully. You will make history if you do that, you will be a model for other places that are struggling with these tough issues. Just thank you, every single one of you for what you've done here."

 

Another warrior passing on…Gus Gutierrez, who struggled tirelessly for the rights of Indigenous peoples. He will be remembered for his positive outlook on life and the good natured person that he was.

Gustavo, PRESENTE!!
