Capitol Advocacy On Youth Criminal Justice, Medical Aid In Dying, Housing

As usual, Tuesday February 5 was a big lobby day at the state capitol. We hear from four of the causes, starting with Aaliyah Guillory-Nickens , Campaign Organizer for Youth Represent, about the Youth Justice & Opportunities Act. Then Barbara Thomas of Saratoga and the League of Women’s Voters gives us an update on the push for the Medical Aid in Dying Law and how it impacted her family. Jim Dukette of the Empire Justice Center follows up with an overview of the Home Ownership Protection Program. We finish up with Pete Sikora of New York Communities for Change talking about the campaign for Social Cost Housing. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
