Dear Yuh-Line Niou, Brian Kavanagh, Deborah Glick, and Brad Hoylman,
Enclosed please find a Resolution approved by Downtown Independent Democrats General Membership on May 26, 2021 in Support of the Justice Roadmap.
The New York State Justice Roadmap is a downloadable living document that outlines a path to justice reform legislation including ending the war on drugs & criminalization of mental illness, de-carcerating jails, promoting investment rather than wealth extraction in marginalized communities, prioritizing community safety above policing and much more.
We encourage you to support this roadmap as well.
