THE FULL STORY ABOUT THE NEW BAIL LAW
Last year, legislators passed a broad criminal justice reform bill that eliminated the use of cash bail for most misdemeanors and some nonviolent felony charges, in an overdue recognition that a person’s wealth shouldn’t determine their liberty. But there has been much misinformation spread about the impacts of the new bail law.
The Legal Aid Society of Suffolk County, Inc. in collaboration with the New York Civil Liberties Union Suffolk County Chapter and the Amistad Long Island Black Bar Association invite you to come learn the true facts of the new bail and discovery laws and hear why they were necessary from local advocates and leaders.
I am honored to be moderating this panel discussion with the following thought leaders and activists:
Presenter: Liz Justesen, Chief Community Outreach Officer at Legal Aid Society of Suffolk County
Panelists: Shanequa Levin of the Long Island Black Alliance, Larry Flowers, Esq. of Amistad Long Island Black Bar Association among others.
