Bail Reform Measure Approved in New Jersey

Yesterday, New Jerseyans showed up at the polls in strong favor of reform to New Jersey’s broken bail system.  Thank you to all of those who worked tirelessly to get this Constitutional amendment passed. A special thanks to task force chair, Al Stawsky, for his passionate dedication to this issue.

The work is not done.  Our Ending the New Jim Crow task force continues to move forward.

Yesterday we proved Margaret Mead right, a small group of committed people affected change. Keep up the great work!
