Find Your Elected Representatives in New York
One of the easiest ways to effect real change within New York State and support the work being done by community groups, including Katal, across the state fighting tirelessly for equity and racial justice, is to be civically engaged. One form of civic engagement is contacting lawmakers directly via email and social media to demand laws are passed or changed, and issues are addressed.
Once you have learned about your legislators, support Katal’s work to end mass incarceration and the drug war in New York by taking our #FreeThemNowNY online action to contact NY lawmakers directly via email and twitter to demand they pass legislation to release people from jails and prisons to save lives amid the coronavirus pandemic.
