The fight to end money bail in California is getting stronger. On Tuesday, July 11, California legislators on the House Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing to decide the fate of landmark legislation, Senate Bill 10, that will transform the entire money bail system.
Now more than ever is the time to keep up the pressure. Greedy, desperate bail bonds companies and their lobbyists are showing up strong and spending millions to stop bail reform. These profiteers think they can win. Early last month, an identical piece of legislation, Assembly Bill 42 was defeated because too many lawmakers caved to the pressure of the bail bonds industry.
BUT people are rallying together to demand transformational change to the criminal justice system in California. Sign the petition!
