Are you an Amazon.com shopper? If so, Amazon will donate half a percent of most purchase prices when you shop at smile.amazon.com. It's the same Amazon you know with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. Of course, we hope you'll choose Center for the Women of New York!

Among Melinda's Year One accomplishments are the creation of a Conviction Integrity Unit to restore justice to the wrongfully convicted, and a Community Partnerships Division to strengthen ties to the myriad communities that comprise the most diverse county in America.
