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
