Ella Baker Center first organized in 1996 to demand justice for Aaron Williams, who was killed by San Francisco police, which led to the firing of the officer in charge. Since then, some of EBC and coalition partners’ victories include: 

  • Closing all California youth prisons, with the final three facilities scheduled to close by 2022
  • Removing several sentence enhancements, eliminating thousands more years of incarceration for people in California
  • Launching the Inside/Outside Fellowship, where incarcerated and directly impacted people work with EBC’s policy team to advocate for change

Our 25th Anniversary is a celebration of our model that works: divesting resources from systems of harm and into solutions generated by Black, Brown, and low-income communities.
