Everyone is welcome to join the CARES Family & Friends telephone meeting on Tuesday, November 18th at 8:00 pm when we welcome Attorney Barbara Dunn. Ms. Dunn has successfully represented many people seeking parole, and over the years chose to focus her practice primarily on the cases of people who were teenagers at the time of their crimes. Since the passage of SB 260, she has represented people in Youth Offender Parole hearings, including Mario, who spoke to CARES at our last telephone meeting, and Francisco, who attended last week’s CARES in-person L.A. meeting, and who we hope to have as a speaker soon. This Tuesday night Ms. Dunn will give a brief overview of the SB 260 Youth Offender Parole process, and then answer your questions. Don’t miss this special opportunity!

Family & friends of youth sentenced to adult prison L.A. & Sacramento meetings a hit!

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

There was a lot of food, laughter, and sharing (along with a few tears) last week when over 60 people gathered in two in-person CARES meetings, one in Sacramento and the other in Los Angeles.  The highlight was guest speakers who were recently paroled with the help of SB 260 & the Youth Offender Parole process. They were a huge inspiration!
