Bill de Blasio signing Renewable Rikers bill

Eileen Maher, a member of the Renewable Rikers Coalition, wrote an op-ed in City Limits calling upon Mayor de Blasio to make Renewable Rikers part of his legacy.

“But right now, this vision and all its powerful benefits are in danger.

This is the wrong move, especially under the horrific conditions in which people are currently being held.”
