- CALL Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins and tell her: “My name is ____ and I am a constituent from ____ [name your town/city]. Thank you for your leadership in moving forward bail, discovery, and speedy trial legislation. As you know, the work is not done! As we move forward, we hope to have your support in passing the next round of bail reform legislation that ends money bail and protects due process for all and true speedy trial legislation that guarantees the right to a speedy trial.”
- POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA using this toolkit: bit.ly/freeny-yonkers
- CALL your County Legislator and ask them: What is your plan to make sure bail reform is implemented to maximize decarceration and vastly reduce the number of people incarcerated pretrial?
We look forward to working with all of you in the fight for decarceration and pretrial justice in Westchester County.
