The Challenging Incarceration Mission



The system of incarceration in New York continues to destroy people, families, and
communities. We are a growing statewide, multi-campaign, multi-issue collective that aims to:

1) End Mass Incarceration;
2) Promote Community Empowerment;
3) End State Violence and Torture; and
4) End Structural Racism and all Intersectional Identity-Based Oppression in New York while protecting the rights of Black, Latino, Asian, Muslim, and Native people; women; immigrants; LGBTI people; impoverished and working class people; people with mental health needs; and all people of our great city and state.

Unite for Parole and Prison Justice: A Day of Advocacy and Action:

May 10, 2017 – Legislative Office Building in Albany. This day will include a rally and speak-out event at West Capitol Park, a march through the capitol, and legislative advocacy around Challenging Incarceration’s platform (can be found at the bottom of the “Facts” page) with a particular focus on parole reform. Free buses will leave from NYC.

Challenging Incarceration June strategy meeting:

June 17, 2017 – 10:00AM to 4:00 PM. At this meeting, members of the coalition and community will strategize around the future of challenging incarceration, its structure, shared values and leadership.
