***MEDIA ADVISORY***

 

WESTERN NEW YORK ASSEMBLY MEMBERS TO HOST FORUM ON

MENTAL HEALTH, SCHOOL SAFETY & VIOLENCE

 

Assemblywoman Jane Corwin, along with Assemblymen John Ceretto, Raymond Walter, David DiPietro, Steve Hawley and Joseph Giglio, will be holding a legislative forum to discuss the very serious issues of Mental Health, School Safety, Gun Violence, and General Public Safety and the correlation of those factors and what comprehensive measures we can take to actually improve the safety of every individual in New YorkState.  Other State representatives from Western New York who will also be in attendance include Senator Patrick Gallivan, and Assemblymen Dennis Gabryszak and Mickey Kearns.

 

Governor Cuomo’s NY SAFE Act has come under much scrutiny for the lack of process and discussion regarding a law that impacts so many citizens.  Their objective is to have a transparent and productive conversation with testimony from individuals and organizations, which aims to improve school and public safety, and adequately address many of the concerns and growing need for enhancement of mental health services and programs for our community.  The public is welcome to attend and listen to testimony.
