In June 2016, Judge Aaron Persky sentenced Stanford swimmer Brock Turner to six months in county jail despite being found guilty of three counts of sexual assault.
On September 2nd, Brock Turner will be released from county jail after serving just three months of his sentence. This is unacceptable.
Join us at the San Jose Superior Court to rally for the Recall of Judge Persky.

If you are able to join us, please RSVP here – and invite your friends too! We need as many supporters as possible to show Judge Persky we mean business – we will no longer tolerate lenient sentences for sex offenders.
