In the Assembly, Hakeem has fought hard to reform our criminal justice system. He successfully passed legislation that eliminated the NYPD's stop-and-frisk electronic database. He has also helped lead the effort to close upstate prisons and repeal the draconian Rockefeller Drug Laws. On the federal level, Hakeem will push the U.S. Justice Department to investigate the systematic civil rights abuses that result from the NYPD's stop-and-frisk program.
