Governor Brown signed–no more shackles!


Governor Jerry Brown signed AB2530, which means that pregnant women can no longer be shackled in California’s jails and prisons. For more information about what this means and what’s ahead, please see this blog post  by Karen Shain of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children.

This is an enormous victory–fought hard by many of our partners and allies.  We are so excited for that this step means, for women and families in California and beyond.

No more shackles
