CA FWD's Partnership for Community Excellence
California has embarked on an ambitious goal of implementing the Public Safety Realignment Act of 2011.
Why is prison realignment such a big deal for Californians?
- 68% of Californians believe that we should shift control over some state programs and revenue to local communities.
- California spends twice as much as other states on its corrections system and yet has a 70% recidivism rate compared to the national average of 40%.
CA FWD is working with experts and stakeholders around California to identify best practices and make sure realignment is implemented successfully. You can learn more about how we're making realignment work here.
