GLIDE Talk: PROP 47: Before and After Race and Social (In)Justice in California

With the passing of Proposition 47 in the November 2014 elections—effectively reducing a range of non-violent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors—thousands of California’s prison inmates are now eligible for release, resentencing, records expungement and opportunities for a fresh start. Join GLIDE and USF for an informative panel discussion on Prop 47 and related issues.
