About Our Client
The Ella Baker Center organizes to shift resources away from prisons and punishment towards opportunities that make our communities safe, healthy, and strong. Named after civil rights hero Ella Baker, they mobilize Black, Brown, and low-income people to build power and prosperity in our communities.
We worked with Ella Baker Center to design their 2022 Back to Court Resentencing Guide for people impacted by SB 1393 or interested in PC § 1170(d)(1) resentencing.
This 97-page toolkit provides information for people serving and/or appealing sentences with 5-year enhancements on how to request resentencing and what to expect in the referral and resentencing process. We hope the information in this Toolkit will help people advocate for themselves for resentencing in a number of contexts.
