Statement By Reverend Al Sharpton On New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s “State of the State” Address

New York, NY (January 9, 2013)—“Today, Governor Cuomo laid out a bold, progressive agenda to make New York a safer, fairer, and more just place for all residents. His much needed proposals on gun control will stop the horrific violence that we have seen across the nation in paces like Sandy Hook Elementary School. I applaud his leadership on fighting for a higher minimum wage so our state’s poorest residents can earn a better living and provide for their families. For too long, stop and frisk has stigmatized our young men in inner cities, Governor Cuomo’s call to reform this process is a significant step forward.”
