In 2018 Exonerated Nation convened a briefing in the California State Capitol to hear directly from exonerees about the many challenges they faced upon release from prison. Much was accomplished from this briefing, including the idea for legislation that would expand the services available to exonerees. Ultimately Exonerated Nation sponsored SB 1050 which in September 2018 was signed into law. The bill will automatically provide health coverage to all exonerees in California, as well as, access to state and local job training programs, food assistance, and “gate money” to help in the first few hours of freedom. EN is very proud for sponsoring this bill and all of the work of exonerees that made this possible.
