Parole Reform - Eligibility

New Yorkers United for Justice (NYUJ), of which NACDL is a member, is working to reform the parole system in New York.

Parole reform is one of the current priority issues of New Yorkers United for Justice (NYUJ), of which NACDL is a member. The coalition adopted five core principles for parole reform in New York, including expanding and streamlining the parole process; providing more due process to people within the parole system; adopting non-carceral responses to noncriminal violations of parole; creating a more comprehensive and rehabilitative approach to community supervision; and expanding evidence-based mechanisms for decarceration. Visit NYUJ's website to read their guide to New York's parole system, Parole in New York: Broken, Costly, and Unjust.

NYUJ is supporting the Elder Parole Act (AB 3475 / S 15), which would authorize the State Board of Parole to consider for release to community supervision any individual who has served at least 15 years of their sentence and has reached the age of 55 or greater.
