Thursday, February 16 is Raise the Age Call In Day.
Please join us in calling 518-455-2800 to support the NY Raise the Age legislation.
Here are some things you can say:
I am calling to urge you to pass comprehensive ‘Raise the Age’ legislation in the state budget due April 1st. New York is one of only two states that prosecutes all 16- and 17-year-olds as adults for any offense, no matter what. This has been proven to jeopardize public safety and does not match what we know about how to help young people get back on track. I urge you to support Raise the Age this session and to do the whole package!
