  • 1. NYS Prisoner Justice Conference
    December 4, 2010 by RIFT SUCCESS
  • 2. MISSION
    The mission of the New York State Prisoner Justice Conference is to bring together the varied and diverse organizations and individuals working for prisoner justice in New York State. There are approximately 90,000 people currently incarcerated in New York’s prisons and jails – people of all ages, sexualities, genders, abilities, and documentation statuses. The overwhelming majority are people of color and of low income. Dozens of organizations address issues of concern in regard to prisoners, their families, and those impacted by the criminal justice system. The goal of the Prisoner Justice Conference is to bring these organizations together to share information, energy, strategies, concerns, ideas, best practices, and hopes at the conference itself, and then through ongoing communication after the conference. In this way we hope to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts – a statewide movement for change, justice, compassion, and more human and humane solutions to social problems in place of reliance on incarceration.
