Osborne's Policy Center Releases 2020 Policy Priorities21 January 2020
On January 21, Osborne released its 2020 policy priorities for the upcoming legislative session.
The Osborne Center for Justice Across Generations (OCJAG), Osborne's Policy Center, has released its 2020 policy priorities.
Our 2020 priorities fall into two categories:
1. Children and Families, and 2. Aging and Parole Justice.
The New York Legislature has a two-year legislative cycle, meaning that in January 2020, legislative bills can be picked up where they left off at the end of June 2019. Many of the bills described here advanced further than ever before last year. These bills safeguard children, strengthen families and communities, and begin to undo decades of criminal justice policies characterized by systemic racism and punishing poverty. It is urgent that these bills pass this year.
