As you may know, Governor Kathy Hochul has proposed gutting bail reform, which would lead to thousands of more people – mostly Black and Brown folks – being jailed at Rikers Island. We’re fighting back! On Tuesday Feb 28th at 12pm in NYC, we are holding a rally at Gov. Hochul’s NYC office to demand — No More Bail Rollbacks! Close Rikers Now! Can you join us?
Rikers is in a state of crisis, yet in her recent state budget proposal, Gov. Kathy Hochul has proposed further rollbacks to bail reform which would lead to thousands more people jailed every year at Rikers and in other jails across New York. The governor’s awful proposal would also derail the planned closure of the Rikers Island Jail Complex. Join us on Tuesday 2/28 at noon at Gov. Hochuls’ NYC office to demand: No More Bail Rollbacks! Close Rikers Now!
