Join Us Next Thursday 12/10: NY Statewide Criminal Justice Reform Monthly Call

Save the date! Join us next Thursday, December 10th from 12 – 1 p.m. for our next New York Statewide Criminal Justice Reform Call held via zoom. These calls bring together organizers and advocates to share updates about criminal justice reform in New York State, and discuss ways to align, coordinate, and support each other’s work to end mass incarceration. In the midst of this pandemic, these calls are another way to connect with each other to continue our collective movement work for freedom and justice. Register for the meeting here.

For more information about the New York State Criminal Justice Reform Call, or to present your issue/campaign on the call, please contact Yonah Zeitz at
