What's it take to pass a law...money, fame, power? Well, to help pass the Sin by Silence Bills, we wanted to rely on the power of the people! People who have been with the Sin by Silence team since our launch in 2009. People who joined our red flag events and wrote on their flags. People who watched the film and were passionate to make change!
We enlisted all of our networks to step up to do something. Call Governor Brown's office. Sign the online petitions. Join us at the California Capitol to meet with legislators. It took an army of people who simply cared to the do the right thing! The result? Over 7,000 domestic violence survivors, currently in California prisons, have a chance at freedom. It takes the power of the people, indeed.
