Our approach to public safety is not working for children, for families, and particularly for Black and brown communities that have been devastated by mental health and substance use health crises, and criminalization. Pass the People’s Response Act Now!
Single moms accused of stealing baby formula or diapers. Teenagers using their student MetroCards off-hours. Out-of-work New Yorkers jumping the turnstile to get to a job interview. Gov. Hochul’s 10 point plan would put them all in jail. Tell your lawmakers NO!
We ALL want schools to be safe but we also must be clear that there is no evidence that increasing the number of police in schools actually improves school safety. Instead it takes critical resources from what actually keeps schools safe and helps ALL kids thrive.
