Join the Fight to Stop Gang Violence in New York

SEN. Martin J. Golden

Enough is enough!

Gang violence has been on the rise in far too many urban and suburban communities throughout New York. From the many drug-related incidents taking place our cities, to the wanton violence recently perpetrated on Long Island by the murderous gang known as MS-13, gang violence is a critical problem that needs to be stopped.  

I recently sponsored legislation - approved by my colleagues in the State Senate - designed to fight the deadly criminal behavior of gangs throughout New York by creating the “Criminal Street Gang Enforcement and Prevention Act.”  This important criminal justice reform will help prosecute gang violence and stop gang recruitment through proactive community outreach. 

For more information on the bill, click here or view the legislation.

Now the Assembly must approve this legislation – and we need your help!

Please sign our online petition and send a strong message to the Assembly that the time is now  to put an end to these violent gangs that are terrorizing our communities.
