BAIL REFORM NOW

March 15 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

| Free

There are effectively two criminal legal systems in the United States, one for the rich and one for the poor. The full weight of the law crashes down on the poor, and particularly poor people of color, subjecting them to lasting indignities and injustices from which rich people and most white people are generally spared. Governor Cuomo has recognized and rightly criticized the determinative role that race and poverty play in our system. He has proposed legislative
changes to bail, discovery – the right to see the evidence against you before trial, and speedy trial. His proposals will be voted on by the end of March, so time is tight. The Governor’s rhetoric is sound but his proposals do not yet match it.
