The platform of the Coalition for Rehabilitation and Reentry calls for a major reorientation of NYS criminal justice toward a more restorative process. Its twelve parts are: Expanded pre-trial services, Fair representation, Job-oriented education, Drug law reform, Treatment and transformation, Prison health services, Merit time, Parole policy and practice, Work release, Reentry support, Family services, and Long-termers/lifers programs. A summary of this platform, and links to its full text, are at www.bestweb.net/~cureny/Co_platform.htm I support this platform, and urge its adoption by the NYS legislature, NYS Department of Correctional Services, and NYS Department of Parole. This petition, with its signers, should be sent to the above three entities.
