All of Us or None membership grew in 2019 to 26 chapters nationwide and 12 in California. Organizers continue to provide outreach training to base building teams who visited community centers, schools, drug treatment centers, churches, barber shops and tattoo shops, as well as community events. Outreach teams spoke to hundreds of people, raising awareness and recruited hundreds of new members living inside the prison walls. All of Us or None Bay Area Chapter is the lead chapter in the national work being orchestrated by the Formerly Incarcerated and Convicted Peoples' and Families Movement. The voting rights work spearheaded by Sr. Organizer Dauras Cyprian continues to support the voting rights campaign to secure the right to vote for people in prison someday. All of Us or None continues to respond to technical assistance, support, and program materials for upcoming chapters. Our national organizer, Oscar Flores works with chapter leaders all over the country to build their membership base and support the campaigns. The Family Unity Project became a part of the programmatic work of All of Us or None in 2018 and it continues to flourish with a new coordinator, Ivana Gonzalez. One of the areas of her work is making connections with women inside through conducting trainings related to family law.
Fiscally Sponsored ProjectsFiscally Sponsored Projects: Legal Services for Prisoners with Children provides support to 7 fiscally-sponsored projects working on a variety of criminal and social justice change issues. Several chapters work on a variety of issues around employment and housing discrimination. In addition to coalition work with many organizations working on criminal justice reform, the CA Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP) continues to visit women's prisons advocating for parole release as well as monitoring inadequate health care services in the CA prison system. CCWP also publishes The Fire Inside newsletter that began publication in 1996 and is the longest continuous publication in the country dedicated to women and transgender prisoners. The Prison Activist Resource Center (PARC) continues to distribute, free of charge over a thousand resource manuals to prisoners, former prisoners and families, providing valuable resource information to people upon release.
Legal & Policy Work Legal & Policy Advocacy is a significant part of the work conducted in 2019. Our Elder Freeman Policy Fellowship employed 3 people to help lead our state and local legislative work in partnership with our Policy Director and the support of other staff. The fellows learn the legislative and administrative law process from the beginning to the end of the legislative cycle. Their visits to legislative offices speaking to elected officials and their staff creates a presence in Sacramento that cannot be minimized. We've established relationships with legislative staff whereas when bills are introduced that we support or oppose, we have the ear of our elected officials. We are using the research we've collected about young people's experiences with law enforcement, how gentrification has affected their families, and organizing in the community. We mobilized over 400 people to the state capitol in Sacramento for our annual day of advocacy called Quest for Democracy to share experiences and concerns about barriers to employment, bail and sentencing reform among other concerns and issues relating to incarceration, post incarceration and how our families have been affected.
