Please sign the REIS Bill!

GOAL: To have Governor Christie sign Rev Boyer’s Racial and Ethnic Impact Statement (REIS) Bill by July 10th

DEADLINE: Today, July 6th 2017

REASON: The Governor only has a few days left (July 10th is the deadline) to sign this critical legislation which would help address the racial disparities in New Jersey’s criminal justice system. We need your help to make sure he does the right thing!

ACTION 1: Take action in our online alert which will automatically send a letter to the Governor urging him to sign the bill without delay. The link to sign up is here: http://tinyurl.com/ycwhw7bg

ACTION 2 : Make a quick phone call to Governor Christie’s office at 609-292-6000. Please tell the person who answers the phone your name, where you live, and say:
“I’m calling to urge Governor Christie to sign Senate Bill 677 / Assembly Bill 3677 into law because our state still has the worst racial disparities within our prison population in the country.”

When you have completed this action, email mglaser@drugpolicy.org and let her know how it went and what the governor’s office said.
