Cruel and Inhumane Punishment

California's prisons have been the center of cruel and inhumane treatment for prisoners.  The conditions have been so bad the the US Supreme Court upheld an order requiring California to clean up its act-- yet, prisoners are facing group punishment, extreme solitary confinement and a lack of proper sanitation.  In response, thousands of prisoners --mostly Latino and African-American-- across the state are on a hunger strike. 

Governor Jerry Brown can require the California Department of Corrections to uphold the law and provide constitutionally safe conditions for prisoners.

The Message

Tell Governor Jerry Brown:

Prisoners across the state are in their third week of a hunger strike protesting cruel conditions.  It is your duty to uphold the law and ensure humane treatment inside Calfornia's prison system.  I ask you to compel the California Department of Corrections to comply the Supreme Court's orders and negotiate better conditions immediately.
