Katie Dixon, policy fellow for LSPC (Legal Services for Prisoners With Children)/All of Us or None, will present an overview of the agency and its work fighting for the rights of formerly and currently incarcerated people and families. The agency is part of a statewide coalition to strengthen the voices of people most affected by mass incarceration and the growth of the prison-industrial complex. The coalition has been successful in passing AB 392, which requires police to only use deadly force when necessary. The bill will go to the governor’s for his signature. A collection will be taken to support All of Us or None.
