#FREEnewyork Townhall: Rochester
June 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Last month, because of the unwavering advocacy of directly impacted people and organizations across the state, a historic package of bail, discovery, and speedy trial legislation passed in the state budget.
On June 6th, join us for a Town Hall to learn about the new legislation, the impact in Monroe County, and what you can do to make sure no one is left behind. PLEASE RSVP!
Together, we will:
CELEBRATE the thousands of people who will no longer be subject to the trauma of pretrial jailing
ACKNOWLEDGE those who were carved out of the legislation
STRATEGIZE the next stage of bail reform to end money bail and protect due process for all people regardless of charge.
At the Town Hall, we will hear from directly impacted people as well as our allies in this work.
The event is sponsored by JustLeadershipUSA, NYCLU, Enough is Enough, Action Together Rochester, SURJ-ROC, Citizen Action of New York, Criminal Justice Alliance, Police Accountability.
