Bail Reform, Decriminalization, and Harm Reduction

Criminal justice reform and social justice are moving forward in New York state.

The state of New York's Joint Senate Task Force on Opioids, Addiction, and Overdose Prevention has been holding a series of hearings around the state to hear from stakeholders on strategies for reducing overdoses, improving individual and community health, and addressing the consequences of drug use. On this week's show, we hear testimony from Ronald Anderson with the Katal Center, Cortney Lovell with Our Wellness Collective, Keith Brown with the Katal Center, and Dionna King with the Drug Policy Alliance.

Plus, New York City's Public Advocate Jumaane Williams spoke at a rally on Tuesday Jan 7th to show support for bail reform.
