March 2017: Call-In for Justice

Our elected officials need to hear from us now through March 28 with the message that comprehensive Raise the Age should be included in the state budget.

New York is one of only two states to automatically charge all 16- and 17-year-olds as adults. This affects thousands of young people across our state.


Please call the legislators who represent you and urge them to Raise the Age this year! It’s easy: enter your address, and with one click you’ll get the phone number and a script.

Once you’ve called your own representatives, if you’d like to do more, please call the leaders below:

  • Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, 631-361-2154
  • Senate Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeffrey Klein, 718-822-2049
  • Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, 718-654-6539
  • Governor Andrew Cuomo, 518-474-8390
