Every day, 125 New Yorkers are sent to jail to await their trial, without being convicted of any crime. They are held in jail for an average of 50 days.
Every year, over 250,000 New Yorkers are arrested. These arrests are concentrated in low income communities and communities of color, and despite the fact that the vast majority are low level offenses, the impact can be devastating for individuals, families, and communities.
Good Call's free 24/7 hotline (1-833-3-GOODCALL) helps individuals and families get in touch with a free lawyer right away in case of an arrest. Legal support at this critical moment helps create fairer outcomes and limits the undeserved damages that an arrest can cause.
Good Call is currently available in the Bronx, but this is a resource needed by all New Yorkers.
Join the fight for fairness. Sign this petition to show that you support Good Call for all of NYC. No matter where you are, your voice matters.
