Capital Region Community Conversation
Join us on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 for an evening of great conversation with community members from across the Capital District as we discuss the impacts of Parole/Community Supervision, technical violations and its impacts on communities. This important issue touches on the intersection of the core of marginalization, mass criminalization and the stigma associated with poverty and racial inequity and your voice is essential to our goal of passing the #LessismoreNY: Community Supervision Revocation Reform Act, keeping our communities intact and ensuring health, equity and justice for all.
There are approximately 35,000 people under active parole supervision in New York State who at almost any time can see their efforts to successfully rejoin the workforce and reintegrate into their families and their communities disrupted by reincarceration for a technical violation. This not only harms individual lives and families without commensurate public safety gains, but also drives up the population in the state prisons and local jails, wasting taxpayer money. The Less is More: Community Supervision Revocation Reform Act would fix this problem.
No longer will our voices be stifled!
