Pledge to Vote on Prop 57

On November 8, people across California will head to polling stations to vote in crucial state and federal races. There will also be a chance to weigh in on several state propositions. One of these is Proposition 57, also known as the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016.

If passed, this ballot measure would allow nonviolent offenders to earn time off for good behavior, pursue more rehabilitation options, and be eligible for earlier parole. Prop. 57 would also make a path for more teenage offenders go through the juvenile system with access to more rehabilitation programs rather than through the adult prison system.

By pledging to vote Proposition 57, you will be a part of Reform CA’s Tikkun Tikvah campaign to restore hope, reform sentencing and engage voters in California.

    Jewish Values

    Judaism teaches that God does not seek the destruction of those who sin, but rather t’shuvah — repentance. We are taught: “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his ways and live” (Ezekiel 33:11). We must work for a criminal justice system that gives those who are incarcerated a real chance for reform and to reenter society.
