Background: M.O.B.B. United for Social Change has been supporting the Raise the Age initiative which was recently passed into law by the New York Legislature. The law represents a major change in how the state deals with 16 and 17 year old defendants, diverting the majority of those cases to Family Court or to judges with access to social services and special training dealing with youth.
After a year of negotiations, and being passed into law, Republicans are now threatening to change the Raise the Age proposal that was just passed into law.
