Liz’s May Community Bulletin is available! Download it as a PDF file here.
New York’s marijuana possession law remains broken as tens of thousands of mostly Black and Latino youth are arrested for marijuana possession each year. Given this changing landscape, we will discuss what’s happening with marijuana reform policy in New York, and get perspectives on what should happen next.

An invitation from the New York City chapter of the National Organization of Women:
We are electing our first new Mayor in twelve years. Now is the time to make sure the next leader of New York City puts equality at the top of their agenda. Hear from the candidates on the critical issues that impact women and girls and affect every New Yorker.
The forum will be moderated by former New York Times city columnist Joyce Purnick, and will feature major Democratic, Republican, and independent candidates. Read on for full details!
Parents: do you know that your child’s confidential, personal school records are going to be shared with a corporation called inBloom?
This highly sensitive information will be stored on remote servers “in the cloud,” shared with this corporation, and could be disclosed to third-party for-profit corporations, to help them develop and market “learning products.”
The data could include your child’s names, address, photo, email, test scores, grades, special education, economic and racial status, and could include detailed disciplinary and health records as well.
Please come and learn more about this plan from advocates and state and city education officials.
