On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo rolled out his 2015 Opportunity Agenda, a criminal justice reform plan to help improve the relationship with the police and citizens.
Afterwards, Jay Z, who met with the Cuomo last month responded to the initiative.
“The criminal justice reform package proposed by Governor Cuomo today is a huge step forward in restoring fairness, protection, sensitivity and accountability for all under our justice system. I commend Governor Cuomo for his bold leadership in taking this issue head on at this critical time. This package presents comprehensive steps to protect and improve relations amongst all citizens. We cannot be divided, as every single human being matters. Together, we can move forward as a community, with mutual respect for each other and continue to make this great state stronger than ever before.”
