The Sin by Silence Bills PASSED the Senate Public Safety Committee! This is a significant step forward as the bills now move on to the Senate floor for the final vote, and then on to the Governor's desk for final approval. As these bills approach the stage of becoming official legislation, we are honored to have you along on this journey.
Our very own survivors, Brenda Clubine (released in 2008),
Norma Cumpian (released in 2011), along with Olivia Klaus (Director/Producer of Sin by Silence) gave testimony to the California State Senate on the crucial need to help incarcerated battered women. A rally on the North steps of the Capitol was also held as advocates from across the state came to support our Sin by Silence Bills (AB 593 & AB 1593), as well as other legislation (AB 1270), to call for transparency in California’s troubled prison system. It truly was an incredible day of making a difference!
