SB 300

On February 9th, Senator Dave Cortese announced SB 300, The Sentencing Reform Act of 2021, to reform California’s unjust “felony murder special circumstance” law and ensure that the death penalty and life without the possibility of parole cannot be imposed on those who did not kill, nor intend that a person die, during a crime. SB 300 will provide recourse to hundreds – potentially more – of people convicted under the “felony murder special circumstances law” that are currently awaiting execution or condemned to die in prison. Thank you to Senator Cortese and bill sponsors Silicon Valley De-Bug, the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, the California Coalition for Women Prisoners, Californians United for a Responsible Budget (CURB), The Drop LWOP Coalition, Families United to End LWOP (FUEL), and the Felony Murder Elimination Project.
