After reading #CourtWatchNYC observation forms, it helps to come home to some cheeriness. #EndMoneyBail #CloseRikers #BuildCommunities #SmellDaffodils pic.twitter.com/k2Gn1vxul6
Do you live or work in #BoerumHill, #BrooklynHeights, #DowntownBrooklyn, or a surrounding community? Come out tonight to the Belarusian Church for a town hall on the #Brooklyn House of Detention and the discussion to #closeRikers. pic.twitter.com/zb4IXuyCeC
Point. Advocates should direct full-bore pressure on deB to take steps that'd enable NYC to #CloseRikers in a year: decriminalize mj poss & farebeat; expose/embarass judges & DAs to #EndCashBail & speed cases; & #EndBrokenWindows. #NYCMayor could do it, but lacks political will. twitter.com/nwmalinowski/s…
Every @NYCCouncil budget hearing should include questions on how the relevant agency is working to #CloseRikers — obviously true of DOC but also of NYPD, DHS, NYCHA, DCAS, DOHMH etc.. twitter.com/courtneycgross…
This is one of the least inspiring hires @NYCMayor has made -- we need a DOC commissioner that will do everything in their power to #CloseRikers as quickly as possible. twitter.com/courtneycgross…

In Albany today with .@JustLeadersUSA to demand bold overhaul of bail & discovery laws so that people’s constitutional rights to due process & a fair shot at justice are protected. #FREENewYork #endcashbail #CLOSErikers #buildcommunities pic.twitter.com/zR6nk7Bjb6
We need to #endcashbail and engage in #bailreform now. Our penal system is out of control when most people in jail are #unconvicted. #CLOSErikers #BailReformNY twitter.com/FairPunishment…
Anudda one! #closerikers Clearly it’s not a safe environment for ANYONE!! RT @NYCityAlerts: Guard slashed in face at Rikers Island nyp.st/2peIFG9 via @nypmetro
Amazing turnout for the #FREEnewyork Albany Day of Action!
In order to #CLOSErikers we need the #FREEnewyork campaign's REAL bail, discovery, and speedy trial reforms.
That's how we achieve pretrial justice.
That's how we #CLOSErikers.
That's how we #FREEnewyork. pic.twitter.com/yuUUZnWUnD
