Help send the incarcerated battered women of California
home to their families after serving
decades behind bars for defending their lives.
A California state prison study found that 93% of the women who had killed their significant others had been battered by them; 67% of these women indicated the homicide resulted from an attempt to protect themselves or their children. These survivors were not permitted to submit evidence of their abuse, or have an expert testimony explain what the endured, and as a results have all spent 20+ years behind bars.
With the State of California in ongoing budget crisis and each prisoner costing taxpayers close to $41,000 per year, it only makes sense to release prisoners who are deemed eligible for parole. There are 50 inmates in California that deserve to be given a fair trials, under today's laws, that would allow an expert testimony and abuse evidence. Understand their stories. Understand their pain. Understand their plea. They have served more than enough time for the crimes of defending their lives, and they deserve a chance to give back to society. It's time to let the incarcerated battered women of California go free!
Show your support of Assemblymember Fiona Ma's AB 593 (The Sin by Silence Bill) to urge legislators to amend current law by allowing victims of domestic violence whose evidence of abuse was limited during their original trial court.
