Correctional Association of NY gets Media Coverage for Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act

Correctional Association of NY, a grantee organization of Move to End Violence, is rallying support for the Domestic Violence Survivors Justice Act (A.7874/S.5436), which would allow judges to give shorter prison terms to domestic violence (DV) survivors convicted of crimes directly related to the abuse they suffered. The state legislation would also provide currently incarcerated DV survivors who pose no threat to public safety with the opportunity to apply for resentencing. Correctional Association of NY has received wide media coverage on this act.
