Read the letter that Root & Rebound wrote with 60+ organizations and advocates joining us to California leaders including the directors of Parole and Probation agencies across the state, outlining critical steps the state needs to take to protect people on supervision (parole, probation and PRCS), their families, and public health.
Read the letter we signed onto to California Governor Gavin Newsom and key members of his team, calling for the release of elderly and medically fragile people from state prisons, and people close to the end of their sentence.
Read the letter we signed onto asking California Attorney General (AG) Xavier Becerra to take immediate steps to protect people in jail, prison, and courtrooms across the state. One positive update is the AG published an advisory on April 14th to all County Sheriffs and Probation Officers about their authority to release people during COVID-19 and similar emergencies to protect people’s health and safety.
