My name is ___________ and I am a member of Brooklyn NAACP. I am calling to urge you to not allow the legislative session to end without addressing these critical issues.

  • Extend Mayoral Control for New York City Schools
  • Renew Rent Control: NYC rent regulations expired last night but I urge the legislature to take action to renew the rent control and tenant protection laws and  increase  vacancy decontrol from $2,500 to $3,500

  • Raise The Age: New York is one of only two states that still prosecute 16 and 17 year olds as adults. I urge you to support A.7642 and S.5642 and raise the age.

  • Resisting Arrest A Felony: There are bills that would make resisting arrest a felony charge in New York. I urge you NOT to support A. 06141 and S. 04260.

  • Appoint a Special Prosecutor we urge Governor Cuomo to take action and issue an executive order to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate all criminal cases involving the use of force by police officers.
