AB 1956: The Crime Victim Services Stabilization Act

Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes speaking in a meeting.
Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes introduces crime victim services stabilization act.

At the end of January, Assemblymember Eloise Gómez Reyes (D-Colton) introduced AB 1956, known as the Crime Victim Services Stabilization Act. This legislation, in conjunction with a budget request (supported by VALOR, Partners Against Violence, and various California organizations) seeking $200 million in ongoing funding, aims to ensure the stability of crime victim services programs in California.

Learn about the Crime Victims Fund, the fund's cap, and the allocation process here.

As the bill progresses through the Legislature, observers are encouraged to stay engaged in the legislative process. The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence and VALOR’s policy teams will consistently provide updates and action alerts while advancing the budget request and AB 1956 in the coming months, keeping the public informed.

You can help advance these priorities collectively through participation in VALOR and the Partnership’s Policy Advocacy Day in Sacramento on April 30th and May 1st. The registration deadline is Friday, April 5th, and the fee is $100. Individuals are invited to join the efforts in Sacramento to advocate for urgent state action in addressing the funding crisis.

We at Partners Against Violence, Valor, The California Partnership, and many other organizations are committed to ongoing federal and state advocacy for stable funding. Gratitude is expressed to those who have actively participated in meetings with Congress and the Legislature members, informing them about the impending cuts. We are eager to continue collaborating with everyone in this ongoing effort.
