We the People Org is a watchdog organization for all Americans. In our fight to promote social justice in the United States, we have created an all inclusive organization filled with a socially and culturally diverse group of American people who come from many different backgrounds. We the people was formed in 2014 by a small group of concerned family, friends, social advocates and interested attorneys to deal with the problem of mass incarceration in California and the need for prison and sentencing reform. During those early days of advocacy we determined there was a national need for an organization devoted to exposing social injustice and to work affirmatively to make change. We launched our non-profit in early 2016 and are now in the process of growing our organization to promoting social justice nationally.
In 2017, we took our first active step towards initiating change by drafting an initiative, THE PEOPLE’S FAIR SENTENCING AND PUBLIC SAFETY ACT OF 2018 to close the legal loopholes in California that have kept our prison population at historic levels and substantially above capacity.
