Ensuring Equal Justice

Creating a stronger, fairer and more just system for all.

The foundation of our society is that our justice system ensures fairness and security for all.

From the women’s movement, worker’s rights, the birthplace of the NAACP, the environmental movement and the gay rights movement, New York has been the nation’s progressive leader.

Now the most important issue on our progressive agenda is ensuring equal justice, and the time to do this is the present.

Governor Cuomo and New York State are once again leading the way in reforming the integrity of the criminal justice system. The 2017 Criminal Justice Reform Act will lead the nation with a comprehensive set of reforms from arrest to trial that will ensure equal justice for all citizens.
