Less Is More Act Passes In NY

Amidst rapidly deteriorating conditions at Rikers Island jail in NY, Governor Kathy Hochul signed the Less Is More Act. The bill ends jail time for most nonviolent parole violations and will help release several hundred people from city jails.

Grantee partners Katal Center, A Little Piece of Light, Women’s Community Justice Association, the Fortune Society and more have intensified their advocacy efforts in recent weeks as details of the crisis at Rikers Island continue to emerge.
