Strengthening Family Connections in California

The mission of the Strengthening Family Connections: In-Person Visitation Campaign is to pass SB 1157 in California, introduced by California State Senator Holly Mitchell, which will protect in-person visitation rights in California county jails, ensuring that video visitation cannot replace in-person visitation.
