We just received this message from HRW Senior Advocate Elizabeth Calvin to STF:
“A huge congrats on this win for Proposition 57. It was great to work with all of you! Thank you for every piece of it, including getting members to gather signatures and blowing past our goal, as well as the army of STF youth standing up in city council meetings, churches, and school and neighborhood gatherings, visiting college campuses and more. A tremendous, beautiful team effort.
Prop 57 goes into effect immediately, although the adult side of things will have to be worked out in regulations.”
Stay tuned for updates on how Prop 57 will be implemented in the coming months. Thank you for standing up for juvenile justice!
