Rally to End the Rockefeller Drug Laws

Wednesday, March 25 at 1:00pm
Governor Paterson’s NYC Office
633 3rd Ave. (3rd Ave. between 40th and 41st sts.)
Rockefeller Rally Flyer

In 2002, Senator David Paterson was arrested in an act of civil disobedience organized by the Drop the Rock Campaign promoting the sweeping overhaul of the Rockefeller Drug Laws outside of the New York City offices of then-Governor George Pataki. 

On Wednesday, March 25, hundreds of family members, formerly incarcerated persons, doctors, lawyers, and advocates will return to this site to urge him and legislative leaders to end the Rockefeller Drug Laws this year.  

The word from Albany is that lawmakers are getting closer to a final package, we need a strong showing in the streets now more than ever to remind the state’s leaders of the stakes of failing to end these laws once again.

Please join us as we say NO to over 35 years of injustice.
