Re:store Justice is holding trainings inside all 35 California State Prisons and working closely with California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitations to explain SB 1437 and who might be eligible to petition for resentencing. We will be giving a talk, answering questions, and will be distributing the Guidebook and Petition that Re:store Justice created. We will also be distributing addresses for public defenders, district attorneys, and superior courts, so that people can file and serve their petitions.
We will start in Northern California, then go to Central California and end in Southern California.

SB 1437: FRIENDS AND LOVED ONE'S STATEWIDE CALL RECORDING
This is a recording of Re:store Justice's first "SB 1437 Friends & Loved One's Statewide Call." On this call, Policy Director/Attorney Kate Chatfield and Policy Associate Mariah K. Watson provided an overview of Senate Bill 1437 and next steps.
We answered questions about implementation timelines, petition process, scams and additional information about past and future cases that SB 1437 will impact. As always, participants had an opportunity to ask questions when we conclude with our presentation.
The petition that we created is available on our website at www.restorecal.org/sb1437. We are requiring people to send us their email address when they get the petition for the simple reason that since we first posted it, we've made changes and alterations and we have been able to email people directly with updates. When the instruction book is available, we are able to email people directly.
If you know someone who may qualify for relief under SB 1437, you need to watch this!
