Marsy’s Law – Prop 9 will establish a Crime Victims’ Bill of Rights in the California constitution. Victims and survivors will be guaranteed rights in the investigation, bail, prosecution and parole processes. Victims will be protected from harassment by the criminals and their criminal attorneys. Victims and survivors will be treated with respect and dignity in all phases of the criminal process.
Friends of Marsy’s Law is a voluntary group of citizens banded together to pass Marsy’s Law – Prop 9 on the California November 2008 ballot.
Marsy’s Law belongs to the VICTIMS, it is our law! If we want it passed by the voters, we must get involved. Defeat is not an option; we won’t have another opportunity for victim justice for a generation, a tragedy we can’t allow to happen! We have defeated opponents with big money before, we will win again!
Members are mostly crime survivors, victims, family and friends who suffer every day from the personal and physical affects and the absolute injustice of violent crime. Members are also concerned citizens who want to balance the scales of justice.

We are not a public charity, c3 or other. We are individuals determined to pass Marsy’s Law using our constitutional rights to assembly, petition and free speech.

Protect yourself and your family from becoming a victim of crime. Use identity theft protection or fraud protection to help. There are many websites that you can use to conduct a background check on someone that you feel may cause you harm. I suggest that you take advantage of that right. Another option is to do a social security number verification and make sure you are not dealing with a fraud, which there are many monitoring services, some that monitor online activity such as Reputation Defender that can check for potential bad press attracted from criminals falsely using your name.
