Re:Imagine Re-sentencing Tour

Re:Store Justice was the lead sponsor of the landmark Felony Murder Reform bill Senate Bill 1437 in 2018. It was a long road for the legislation to pass and it lead to the freedom our our Co-Founder.

In 2019, our goal was to educate incarcerated people who might be eligible for re-sentencing under the new law. We created a Guidebook © 2018 to help educate people and understand the process of re-sentencing.

Throughout the beginning of the year, Re:Store Justice held trainings inside all 35 California State Prisons and worked closely with California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitations to explain Senate Bill 1437  (Felony Murder Rule Reform) and who might be eligible to petition for re-sentencing. We gave talks, answered questions, and distributed our Guidebook © and Petition that Re:Store Justice created (we included the Spanish translation). We also be distributed addresses for public defenders, district attorneys, and superior courts, so that incarcerated people could file and serve their petitions.

We began our tour Northern California, then went to Central California and ended 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, we 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 here.

If you know someone who may qualify for relief under SB 1437, you need to watch this!
