U.S. Senator Kamala Harris and NY’s 16th congressional candidate Derickson K. Lawrence, cross paths on the campaign trail.

MOUNT VERNON, NY — May 1, 2018 — “We need to reform the cash Bail system,” says Harris who has introduced legislation in the U.S. Senate to that effect. Lawrence strongly supports the Senator’s position. “Too many young black and brown Americans spend anywhere from 3 to 18 months in prison – for low level offenses — not because they are guilty, but because their bank accounts are empty. We have a problem with mass incarceration in our country, we need to decriminalize marijuana.”  Separately, the devastation of opioid abuse in our society makes clear the point that drugs and addiction are a public health concern. “We need to innovate around treatment options at lower costs to society,” said Derickson K.

Incumbent Congressman Eliot Engel voted for the 1994 Crime Bill –three strikes you’re out and mandatory minimum sentences – which contributed to the explosive growth of mass incarceration in Theo 90’s and the for-profit prison systems. A generation of broken families is still feeling the effects in our local community. Let’s hold Engel accountable.
