Announcement

California Bishops Support Proposition 47

 

The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act (Proposition 47) is on the ballot for voters in November.  This proposition will address prison overcrowding and will re-define certain non-violent crimes as misdemeanors, using the money saved for assistance to victims, for mental health services, and for public education.

The California Conference of Bishops supports this proposition.  The statement of support is attached along with a fact sheet (in ENG/SPA) concerning this initiative.
