THE STORY:

Please join us for a drop-in backyard barbeque in support of Californians for Safety and Justice, a statewide advocacy organization.  

The goal of our fundraiser is to raise awareness and understanding of the complex criminal justice system in our nation with a focus on how our community can make a difference. 

Our partnership with Californians for Safety and Justice was inspired by our book club’s eye-opening experience reading lawyer and social justice activist Bryan Stevenson’s book, Just Mercy. 

Come and enjoy the late October sunshine, one another's company, burgers, veggies, wine and beer. Your donation will help fund effective criminal justice strategies to stop the cycle of crime and build healthy communities. 

LOGISTICS:
Date: Saturday Oct. 22 from 4 - 6:30 pm
Location: Backyard at 5556 Claremont Ave Oakland, CA
Food and drinks served. Lawn games played. Children welcome.
Please register for the event.


More About Californians for Safety and Justice:
We chose to support Oakland-based nonprofit organization Californians for Safety and Justice (CSJ), a project of the Tides Center, because we believe in their mission and their successful track record of converting action into real reforms across the state. Californians for Safety and Justice’s c4 sister organization, Vote Safe, spearheaded the advocacy around the passage of Prop 47, a 2014 ballot initiative adopted by voters to reduce incarceration and reallocate that prison savings  to mental health, drug treatment, K-12 programs and crime victim services. CSJ promotes effective criminal justice strategies, with crime survivors at the center of its policies,  to stop the cycle of crime and build healthy communities. What does sensible criminal justice reform look like?

The following common sense reforms will ensure our communities stay safe and allow us to reroute funds to mental health services, addiction treatment, investments in safe neighborhoods and supporting crime survivors.

  • Reducing sentences for nonviolent offenders and investing instead in addiction treatment, education and rehabilitation programs.
  • Eliminating mandatory sentencing laws and life behind bars without parole for nonviolent offenders.
  • Barring the death penalty and sentences of life in prison without parole for juvenile offenders.
