The devastating economic, social and political impacts of mass incarceration visited upon people of color in New York State can only be addressed through bold, systemic changes. For that reason, we call upon Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to immediately appoint a Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission to assess the impact of mass incarceration on people of color since 1970; to employ a “truth and reconciliation” process to bring together law enforcement and the community at large to examine the impact of mass incarceration; and to produce bold, systemic recommendations to halt the practice of mass incarceration in New York State and redress the grievances of those already harmed.
