Assembly Bill 2342 would help reduce crime, incarceration, and recidivism in California by ensuring that people on parole acquire skills, treatment, and education needed to reach their true potential and make a positive impact on their community.

The bill was informed by people, like Dream Corps  National Director Michael Mendoza and Dream Corps JUSTICE State Policy Director Esteban Nuñez, who have lived under the strain of California’s parole system and experienced firsthand the surprise check-ups, stringent travel restrictions, and constant fear of technical violations or reincarceration. 

As we emerge from this challenging time together, we must work toward something better than before – because a normal where people on parole are set up for failure instead of success after serving time in prison is not a normal worth returning to. Add your name if you agree.

California lawmakers and governing body,

We need to fix California's broken parole system. The number of people in the state's parole system is growing – and expected to reach 56,000+ people by next year. We can’t stop wasting resources like this. We need a parole system that works to support both the people on parole and the communities they’re returning to. 

Here’s what AB2342 does:

  • Shifts parole from punitive based to goal oriented supervision.
  • Creates a credit earning program that reduces the length of parole by incentivizing success through education, vocational training programs, pre apprentice / apprenticeship programs, rehabilitative treatment programs, and / or volunteer service.
  • Allows students and employees on parole to travel beyond the limited travel radius for the purposes of commuting to and from work. 

AB2342 would improve California’s parole system by ensuring people get the support they need to succeed. Too often, lengthy parole terms serve as a trapdoor to failure. This bill would change that. I urge you to take action and support this bill to help open the doors of opportunity for the 53,475 people currently on parole in California.
