API Rise Endorses CalCare!

The mission of API Rise is “to make freedom possible for the community of current and formerly incarcerated individuals, youth and families in high-risk situations, allies, supporters, and their communities. We do this through culturally sensitive direct support, education, power building, organizing, and advocacy.”

As an Asian and Pacific Islander social justice organization, API Rise understands that the passage and implementation of AB220/CalCare will relieve a tremendous burden carried by individuals struggling to re-enter societal life following incarceration. CalCare will help their families and rebuild the healthcare infrastructure, including improvement of access to mental healthcare. As a single-payer reform, it will provide superior care to what is currently available, including dental/vision/hearing/long-term care/gender-affirming care without costly premiums/co-pays/deductibles!

Thank you for joining the movement to win CalCare, API Rise!
