With big legislative changes in California, how could our client connect with decision makers?
In 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court told California to fix its prison overcrowding immediately or face drastic consequences. So California passed Assembly Bill 109, which shifted responsibility for supervising tens of thousands of inmates from the state to the counties—and the change needed to begin in just months. For almost all California counties, the deadline was daunting.
The intensive campaign helped BI and GEO Reentry quickly set meetings with decision makers throughout the state and garner more than a dozen contract wins with California counties before AB 109 even took effect. By showing officials a better solution than incarceration as a first sanction, Pivot helped BI and GEO Reentry establish themselves as leaders in realignment solutions.
