Californians for Safer Communities logo

The campaign to reform proposition 47 is approaching the deadline to qualify the measure for the November ballot. Launched in mid-February, the campaign must gather 550,000 signatures by the end of April in order to qualify.

  • The measure allows judges to sentence drug dealers who traffic in large quantities of hard drugs to state prison and adds non-prescription fentanyl to the list of hard drugs.  . . .  read more
