Letters in support of California AB 2295 needed!

Letters of support are needed for AB 2295 by April 16th!

This is the last day to register your support in the Assembly Public Safety Committee's official record before the first policy hearing on April 23, 2024

AB 2295, authored by Assembly Member Dawn Addis, would eliminate the statute of limitations going forward in criminal cases being brought against perpetrators of child sexual assault. This will allow child victims to seek justice, get these perpetrators off the streets, and thereby prevent more child sexual assaults. It will also create a public record of these offenders so churches, youth organizations, and communities can take the appropriate steps to prevent their access to children. You can find a fact sheet about AB 2295 here.

Please send your letters to the Public Safety Committee online so your letter will be in the record. The directions for submitting a letter are below.  Please send us a copy of your letter as well: [email protected]

In addition, if you are in the district of one of the Public Safety Committee Members, please also call/email the legislator that represents you and let them know you support this bill. You can verify your representatives and find their contact information here.
