The push for bail reform continues 

Activists in a statewide effort to reform New York's criminal justice system held a town hall event in Rochester last night.

At last night's event, at the David Gantt Community Center, about 100 people turned out to hear speakers detail the problems caused by the current bail system.

#FREEnewyork is focusing particularly on reforms to the state's bail system, which causes thousands of people to spend days in jail without a conviction because they can't afford to post bail.

#FREEnewyork is also pushing for speedier trails and reforms in the state's discovery law.

Local organizations involved in the effort include Metro Justice, Enough is Enough, SURJ ROC, and Facing Race, Embracing Equity.
