My name is Avery Bizzell. CSS uses a multifaceted approach to attack income inequality in New York. CSS has been at the forefront of this work for years, changing our strategy and focus as the times demand. Today, we engage in policy work, legislative advocacy, impactful direct services programs and litigation in order to help create a fairer, stronger New York. It almost goes without saying that due to discriminatory policing and prosecution practices, these burdens are disproportionally borne by people of color. CSS litigates on behalf of individuals and groups who have suffered actionable discrimination because of their records, and we engage in policy and legislative advocacy to make systemic change. Further, our Next Door Project helps more than low-income New Yorkers each year to obtain, understand and fix mistakes in their official criminal record rap sheets.
