Join The Coalition for Family Unity in Support the 2021 Family Unity Bill

(AB 990 (Bonta))

Preserving Family Bonds During Incarceration

The 2021 Family Unity Bill recognizes that frequent contact through visits and phone calls preserves family bonds during incarceration, providing family structure for the children and spouses left behind, supporting the mental health of the incarcerated, and reducing recidivism after incarcerated people reenter our communities.
