Highlights from our March 8 Lobby Day

On Tuesday, March 8, the Raise the Age Campaign lobby day brought more than one hundred young people and adults from across the state to Albany to speak with state lawmakers about raising the age of criminal responsibility in New York.

Leaders, advocates, and members of the Assembly including Assembly Member Bichotte, Assembly Member Blake, Assembly Member Richardson, Assembly Member Sepulveda, Assembly Member Crespo spoke at the event. (Check out their video clips in the storify.)

Take a moment to make a difference. Raise the age legislation was included in Governor Cuomo’s Executive Budget and we need to ensure it stays there as the legislature tackles the budget this month. You can help. Take Action – it only takes a minute to add your voice!
