  • Election Guide: 8 Ballot Measures For Racial Justice

    Vote with people of color this election to protect renters, boost police oversight, and lessen the harms of the prison system. SURJ Bay Area’s editors have highlighted statewide and local ballot measures that will most affect communities of color.

    For example, two propositions on the California ballot are related to the death penalty. As the NCADP put it: “The burdens and failures of the United States justice system fall most heavily and unfairly on communities of color. There must be a fundamental change in the system. The lynchpin for that change is ending capital punishment."

    By voting on the following measures, you can do your part to stand up for racial justice.
