Proposition 47 passed with 58% of the vote, reducing five non-violent, low level crimes to misdemeanors and giving 50,000 Californians a fresh start with greater access to employment and services that will help them be productive members of the community. Prop 47 doesn’t just impact people who have been incarcerated; it benefits all of our communities. It redirects hundreds of millions of dollars a year away from prisons and into programs that prevent crime – K-12 education, victim services, mental health services and substance abuse rehabilitation. It also moves funds from probation sheriff’s budget into community based proven re-entry and prevention services.
