Note: we’ve rescheduled this event!
We’ve received word from our elected officials, Senator Robert Jackson & Assemblywoman Carmen de la Rosa, that the New York State legislative session will be continuing through today. They are advocating and voting on a crucial bill to decriminalize possession of Marijuana and to expunge criminal records for Marijuana related offenses and have asked to postpone the rally. As a result, we are moving the date of the rally to July 11, allowing them to finish their work and support our community and these much needed services. We thank them for their efforts in reducing the reach of the carceral state and reducing the harm that the War on Drugs has done to our communities.
Thank you for your understanding. We hope to see you on July 11!
New York-Presbyterian plans to close the Allen Hospital’s psychiatric unit and replace it with a more lucrative spine center. On Thursday, July 11, join your neighbors and elected officials, including State Assemblywoman Carmen De La Rosa and State Senator Robert Jackson, for a rally and press conference about saving Allen Psych! New York's largest provider of psychiatric care is Rikers Island, and we believe that a better world is possible.
