Why New York State Must End Cash Bail

New York state has one legal system for the poor and people of color, and another for wealthy white men who can buy their freedom. In fact, thousands of New Yorkers are languishing in jail awaiting trial behind bars because of a cash bail system that punishes people for being poor. That’s not justice. It’s time to abolish cash bail. It’s time to end discriminatory policing that targets communities of color. And it’s time to invest in schools, not jails, here in New York state.
