An open letter to State Legislatures

Please vote to repeal 50A!

12 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

50-a is a NYS statute that carves out unnecessary & harmful secrecy for police, fire and corrections. 50-a is routinely used to shield police misconduct and failed police disciplinary processes from public view. A repeal of 50-a would provide much needed transparency on police misconduct and discipline in New York State, and help address the systemic lack of accountability for officers who engage in misconduct. Other existing FOIL statutes will continue to protect private information about officers (like their home address) once 50-a is repealed. The support of legislation to repeal 50-a is included in the New York State 2020 Legislative Agenda (Brooklyn NAACP)
