Campaign to End the New Jim Crow

We challenge the culture of racism, repression and retribution that sustains mass incarceration. We seek to remove the structural injustices inflicted on the incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, their families and the communities from which they come. We seek human rights for all members of our society non-violently, in opposition to our current system of justice, which is inherently violent.

Join us as we embark on our campaigns to reform parole,ban the box and end the torturous use of solitary confinement in NY’s prisons, jails and detention centers

    Can you give me some insight on the quality of Graterford State Correctional facility? I read an article approximately 1 year ago that the water has high levels of chemicals. These chemicals are known cancer starters.

    Please advise
    Thank you
