The Ending Jim Crow task force has asked that we send letters in support of upcoming bail reform legislation expected to come to vote in June. There are two letters, one to Sen. Sweeney, President of the Senate and one to Assemblyman Prieto, Speaker of the Assembly. Each person should sign both letters. We would like to have these all collected and returned to me at the address below by May 16. Fact sheets about bail reform are available for information and education in the congregations. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Al Stawsky, Task Force Chair, or me.
You may have noticed that these are not on our letterhead. This was requested by the campaign coordinator, Drug Policy Alliance. However, we have adapted the letters to include our UU identity in the body.
Thank you for your help.
