Prevention means engaging communities beyond awareness and transforming it into action. Now more than ever, we need people power to call for $50 million in ongoing funding to prevent sexual and domestic violence. Because Governor Newsom did not include this request in his May Budget Revision last week, Californians must act now to ensure that it’s a priority at the Capitol. The final budget will be released in just a few short weeks!
