Mothers Drive Effort in San Jose to Stop Direct Filing of Youth Into Adult Court

Wrapping up six weeks of collecting signatures — in front of juvenile hall, the jails, courthouses, at rallies, churches, workplaces, our neighborhoods, our streets, and our homes. Our families and young people are always at the foreground, moving us to act in ways greater than the sum of our experiences. We are honored to join forces with community organizations across California to collect signatures for the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016 that will end direct file and reduce incarceration that will allow our loved ones to come home. Let’s get this on the ballot and fight for our families.

This is Veronica, a San Jose mama who stood in front of Santa Clara County juvenile hall collecting signatures til the very end.
