My op-ed about closing Riker’s Island is in the New York Daily News today! I’m so proud. It had to be significantly cut down, but the editor did a great job of that. I do have friends in the Department of Correction, and I hope they understand that they are not responsible for the problems of society that resulted in what Rikers has become. They are victims as well and closing Rikers is best for everyone. It hurts us all.
Spotted on the ground on my way to our choir concert last night. We are not alone!
