KQED: Report: Ballot Measure Would Put Thousands Behind Bars, Harm Communities of Color

“[Prop 20] would roll back a number of recent criminal justice reforms would disproportionally harm communities of color…”

“[Prop 20] would drive up prison and jail populations, increase public spending on law enforcement and incarceration by hundreds of millions of dollars a year, in addition to diverting resources from programs that rehabilitate former offenders, and generally hurt communities of color.”

“…crime has continued to fall in California as reforms took place over the past decade — and any reversal of those changes would disproportionately impact communities of color in California, who are incarcerated at higher rates than whites.”
