Watch the Capitol Press Event from August 21, 2012

Assemblywoman Fiona Ma (D-San Francisco and San Mateo Counties) joined Brenda Clubine, a survivor who spent 26 years behind bars for defending her life against her abuser, Senator Noreen Evans, Chair of the Legislative Women’s Caucus, Tara Shabazz from the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence and other advocates to advocate for AB 593 and AB 1593 known as the “Sin by Silence” bills. Shortly after, both bills passed out of the Senate floor. As the chair of the Domestic Violence Select Committee, Assemblywoman Ma has worked diligently to shed light on issues of domestic violence and the challenges that incarcerated victims of domestic violence experience while in the judicial system. One of the cases that became the catalyst behind AB 593 and AB 1593 was that of Brenda Clubine’s. “These women deserve justice,” stated Assemblywoman Ma. “Today, we give hope to approximately 7,000 victims who have survived domestic violence.”
