Bail Reform: On Wednesday, Aug. 23, hundreds of SEIU Members travelled to the State Capitol to lobby in favor of Bail Reform bill SB10. Our efforts paid off – just two days later, Governor Jerry Brown announced that he will work with SB10 authors to make sure the bill gets passed. This means it will not be heard by the Appropriations Committee as scheduled, but will be postponed. Read Gov. Brown’s press release here.
