The Starting Point Reentry Act - AB 717 (Stone)

Coming home with a photo ID validates that a formerly incarcerated person is now a community member of California & helps them reenter society with their dignity restored. A yes on #AB717 will help future community members, so they don’t face the same barriers as Aldo did. 

No one should leave prison without a photo ID, especially during a pandemic. Let’s pass #AB717 to make sure every person leaving prison can come home with an ID and access basic needs such as housing, employment opportunities,  health care, and benefits that will put them on the right path to reentry success.

AB 717 will increase the eligibility for the CAL ID program, including those serving life or long sentences. In 2019, Only 29% of people were released with IDs, leaving 71% of these individuals without identification upon return home, creating an onerous reentry process to obtain an ID. 

Your donation will move us closer to thousands of people getting IDs before they leave prison.
