BDS Testimony before the New York Senate Committee On Crime Victims, Crime & Correction on the Elder Parole and Fair & Timely Parole Bills

The Elder Parole and Fair & Timely Parole bills will help to improve community safety by reorienting parole release policies to value personal transformation and safety, rather than vengeance, returning people with valuable personal experience back into their communities to act as formal and informal mentors and violence interrupters, and will help NYS save an estimated $522 million per year that could be better spent on housing, healthcare and treatment, material support for crime victims and survivors, and more.
