One Day to Protect New Yorkers Rally
May 22, 2018
The 364 Campaign supports A.4881/S.4294 a bill that would amend the New York State penal law to reduce the maximum potential sentence on class A misdemeanor charges by one day. Currently, the maximum potential sentence is up to one year; the proposed bill would reduce it to 364 days. This change would apply retroactively for anyone previously convicted of a class A misdemeanor.
This change would allow New York State law and federal immigration law to effectively interface. Federal immigration judges would be able to exercise discretion and make informed decisions in cases involving the potential deportation of individuals convicted of class A misdemeanor crimes.
Please join The Fortune Society, Immigrant Defense Project, and other allies on May 22nd because one day matters!
We will be chartering a bus to Albany, which will leave from The Fortune Society (29-76 Northern Blvd, Long Island City, NY 11101) at 8:00 AM sharp. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
RSVP for a seat on the bus is: www.fortunesociety.org/onedaymatters
