NEW YORK, NY – The New York City Chapter of Independent Women’s Network (IWN), the national grassroots community activist arm of Independent Women’s Voice, today announced the launch of an Action Center to address public safety in New York City and to fight surging crime that is sweeping the city.
Crime in New York City has increased 37% since the bail reform law took effect almost two years ago and crime is at its highest rate in over 30 years. The data is clear; current progressive policies being advanced by New York City public officials is not working.
By targeting representatives in the New York State Assembly and members of the New York State Senate Crime Victims, Crime and Correction Committee, IWN’s NYC Action Center aims to push back on policies that hurt families and communities, such as decarceration and de-policing.
“Crime is destroying the city we love. It is my hope that the IWN NYC Action Center will help empower more voices to speak out on this issue, provide the resources necessary for impact, and pressure local officials to take appropriate action in their respective jurisdictions,” said Aundrea Anime, Independent Women’s Network New York City Chapter Co-Leader. “We must work together to end progressive policies that increase crime and advance policies that will keep families and communities safe.”
“Out-of-control crime is rampant in New York City, and underserved communities are hurting the most.” added Regan Otto, IWN Chapter Co-Leader and former Assistant District Attorney. “I’m glad Independent Women’s Network is a leading voice on this issue at the local level. Recent data has shed light on just how many people are leaving New York City. We want people to move to America’s largest and greatest city, not flee from it.”
