Leader Profiles

Caitlin Walsh spent five years trying to survive as a meth addict. She quit using five years ago and has since travelled the world and received two degrees from the University of London. Her brother, on the other hand, has spent the last eight years trapped in the arms of the criminal justice system. She says, “Prop. 47 is the most important measure on the November ballot.”

Emilio knows what it’s like to have a loved one trapped in the criminal justice system.  His whole family has been deeply affected by the state’s treatment of his younger brother. Emilio  is voting YES on Prop 47 because he believes that increasing social services is the way to build a better future for all Californians.
