New Yorkers Join Us Monday for ATI/Reentry Rally on City Hall Steps!


Join Us Monday for ATI/Reentry Rally on City Hall Steps

With budget talks under way, now is the time to urge the City Council to restore critical ATI/reentry funding. We hope you'll come out for our rally and press conference on Monday to show your support!

Rally details:

  • When: Monday, June 13, at 11:45 a.m.
  • Where: City Hall steps (see map)
  • Featured guests: Brooklyn District Attorney Charles J. Hynes; Council members Elizabeth Crowley, Daniel Dromm, and Peter Vallone Jr.
  • What to bring: Signs and loud voices to show your support! (Note on signs: Security at City Hall requires that there be no metal or sticks attached.)
  • Contact: LAC's state policy director, Tracie Gardner, at (347) 585-1380

Now, more than ever, ATI/Reentry programs need to be a priority for a "smart on crime" future in New York City. Please join us (and spread the word!) in telling the Council that cuts to our programs now will only cost the city more later — in dollars and in public safety.

Background:

As many of you know, members of the New York ATI/Reentry Coalition have sustained devastating cuts in city funding over the past few years, even as our crucial work has helped to make our communities safer while saving millions of taxpayer dollars.

Now, the City Council has concluded its budget hearings and is working on the budget for the 2012 fiscal year, due June 30. This means time is running out for us to persuade them to restore critical funding for ATI/Reentry programs in New York City.
