What is Prop 47?
On November 4, 2014, the voters of California passed Proposition 47, a law that reduces some felonies to misdemeanors to cut incarceration cost and invest those savings in our communities. Together Californians embraced a new vision for community health and safety: one that prioritizes prevention and treatment over harsh punishments.

Eligible offenses:
• Simple drug possession
• Petty theft under $950
• Shoplifting under $950
• Forgery under $950
• Writing a bad check under $950
• Receipt of stolen property under $950

Because of Prop 47, today, many San Diegans are eligible to clean up their criminal record and reclassify old felony offenses to misdemeanors, but many still don’t know that they are eligible. Too often individuals carrying a felony conviction struggle to find employment and are barred from the very services meant to help those struggling in poverty. Prop 47 can mean a new start not only for those individuals, but their families as well. Prop 47 reclassification can open doors to employment, access to housing and education.
