From our friends at Release Aging People From Prisons Campaign(RAPP):

Today, the New York State Assembly Correction Committee  passed the Fair & Timely Parole Act. Communications and Policy Associate, TeAna Taylor, released a statement on behalf of The People’s Campaign for Parole Justice, If signed into law, the Fair & Timely Parole Act would ensure that parole release decisions are based on who incarcerated people are today. It would also mean that people like my father, who will one day go before New York’s Parole Board, will actually receive a fair chance at release. Read TeAna’s full statement here.
