Senate passes youth life without parole bill, moving CA one step closer to ending the sentence for youth!

On May 30th, the California Senate passed SB 394, the “Montgomery Bill.” It now heads to the State Assembly, where it will need to survive two committees and a vote of the full Senate to become law. If it does become law, people sentenced to life without parole for crimes that happened under age 18 will have a chance at parole starting in the 25th year of incarceration. Click here to act!
