Jay Z's 2014 meeting with New York governor Andrew Cuomo has borne fruit with his recent endorsement of the Governor's 6-point plan for police reform. The plan unveiled during Governor Cuomo's State of the State address on January 21st, is considered to be a step in the right direction toward improving relations between communities and the law enforcement officers assigned to police them. Jay Z weighed in with his thoughts, as reported by Capitol Confidential, following the address:

“The criminal justice reform package proposed by Governor Cuomo today is a huge step forward in restoring fairness, protection, sensitivity and accountability for all under our justice system. I commend Governor Cuomo for his bold leadership in taking this issue head on at this critical time. This package presents comprehensive steps to protect and improve relations amongst all citizens. We cannot be divided, as every single human being matters. Together, we can move forward as a community, with mutual respect for each other and continue to make this great state stronger than ever before.”
