Preparation for LWV NYS Concurrence with LWV CA Criminal Justice Position
May 27 from 7pm to 8:30pm by Zoom
Prep Meeting for Criminal Justice
The LWV of Saratoga has proposed the 2021 LWV NYS concur with LWV of California’s Criminal Justice Position.
Thirteen other NYS Leagues have joined Saratoga — and the LWV NYS is recommending concurrence the position to delegates. This meeting will answer your questions.
The California Position is here: https://lwvc.org/our-work/positions/position-criminal-justice.
This comprehensive position would enable local leagues in New York to speak to a range of police reform and other criminal justice issues.
Lori Dawson, the prime mover of this effort, will present a PowerPoint that includes the language of the Criminal Justice position as well as the Convention plenary timeline, and proposed Convention Rules that apply so that LWVNYS Delegates are prepared to vote. Learn the topics included in this position and see if you agree.
