"Now a criminal justice and drug policy educator with the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California, Moss said the cost of providing services to people would be cheaper and more effective than incarceration.

Instead of Santa Cruzans calling to "take our city back," Moss proposed, "Give folks a chance to take their lives back.""
