BECAUSE OF ALL YOUR HARD WORK…
IN 2017, ASSEMBLY BILL 2298 WAS SIGNED INTO LAW!!!
UNDER THE NEW LAW, AB2298 WILL: (1) Ensure people of all ages right to notification, right to challenge designation with the law enforcement agency, and right to appeal to Superior Court if they are added to a shared gang database (including but not limited to CalGang); and (2) Require the State of California to release data every year covering the numbers and demographics of people added or removed from shated gang databases.
BUT WE HAVE TO FIGHT FURTHER TO MAKE SURE THE LAW IS FOLLOWED. BASED ON BOTH OUR OWN EXPERIENCES AND THE STATE AUDIT THAT WE FOUGHT FOR – WE KNOW THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS NOT COMPLIED WITH A SIMILAR LAW – SB458 FOR THE RIGHTS OF YOUTH – THAT WAS PASSED IN 2013.
PLEASE JOIN US WEDNESDAY, 1/11/17
TO CONTINUE TO MAKE AB2298 & SB458 REAL AND TO PUSH FOR ADDITIONAL LEGISLATIVE VICTORIES THIS YEAR!
