Partnership for Community Excellence

Confronted with enormous costs and poor results, California has embarked on an ambitious reform to augment a state-based prison system with comprehensive community correction strategies through a policy called "AB 109 Public Safety Realignment."

Why is prison realignment such a big deal for Californians?

  • 68% of Californians believe that California should shift control over some state programs and revenue to local communities.
  • California spends twice as much as other states on its corrections system and yet has a 70% recidivism rate compared to the national average of 40%.

CA Fwd is working with county officials, experts and advocates to help local governments develop the capacity to deliver cost-effective programs that improve results. Learn more about how we're making realignment work.
