In 2024, we made MAJOR PROGRESS in our fight to overhaul NY's racist & unjust sentencing laws. Thank you to our CCA members, partners, & supporters for your hard work & commitment. As we gear up for 2025, let's celebrate how far we've come to win #CommunitiesNotCages.

🚨Please stop what you’re doing and listen to the Director of the Drug Policy Alliance explain what’s going on with the cannabis industry in New York State! The people who were most affected by the criminalization of cannabis are being shut out of the industry!

We sent a memo of support this week for the #NYHEAT Act to the @NYSA_Majority and @GovKathyHochul. The NY HEAT Act means cleaner heat and lower bills and a brighter future. NY HEAT must pass this session!

I was leafleting in front of @stefanizinerman’s office yesterday with @FWWNewYork ! We need Zinerman to be a climate champion and tell @CarlHeastie to PASS THE FULL NY HEAT & CLIMATE CHANGE SUPERFUND ACT! As a youth activist, I implore you to protect our future.

🚨Our analysis of mortgage data in Monroe County: For every $1 loaned in white communities, only a nickel was loaned in communities of color.

This is unacceptable and demands immediate action.

@andreascousins @carlheastie pass the Bank of Rochester Act!

Congratulations to our Executive Director, @juanita_omoshola_lewis, on receiving an award from @WESPAC_NY! 👏🏿

Congratulations to the other honorees, Harry Soloway and Diana Sanchez for their incredible work in this field. ✊🏾

Today we were invited in by Grace Church in @AndreaSCousins’ district. Anthony Dixon of Parole Prep, who served 32 years, gave the sermon. After that, we screened a short film and held a panel discussion. Every parishioner signed postcards urging passage of #ParoleJusticeNY.
