‘Justice Not Fear’ campaign seeks to monitor NYC bail reform changes and counteract misinformation, ‘fear-mongering’


With gun violence plaguing the city and seven NYPD officers having been shot in just over a month, many New Yorkers are calling for rollbacks on bail reform.

However, Zealous — an education initiative — launched a project on Feb. 1 that the organization says provides ongoing briefings by legal and policy experts to fact check, and counteract any misinformation and fear-mongering surrounding New York’s bail reform law.

Believing that many news reports and public statements are often misrepresenting the truth, Zealous indicates the new site, dubbed “Justice Not Fear,” will track the impact of pretrial reform while also reviewing the bills in hopes of correcting what they call false or misleading information.
