is a coalition of community-based organizations, formerly incarcerated and directly impacted people, organizers and advocates in Westchester and the Hudson Valley who envision a world without cages. We work together to dismantle systems of criminalization and incarceration locally and across New York State with the understanding that they are built on white supremacy, target Black and brown communities and criminalize poverty. We fight to create alternatives that advance justice and liberation and build a world where all of our communities have what they need to thrive. To get involved, email Katie at [email protected].
Decarcerate the Hudson Valley
Long Island Social Justice Action Network (LISJAN)
Transformative change to the criminal legal system in New York cannot be achieved without building the statewide power of Black and Brown communities who have been targeted, brutalized and disenfranchised by this system. LISJAN is building that power in Long Island. Through joint actions based on Long Island, we work to affect meaningful change and abolish systems of oppression. To get involved, email Serena at [email protected].
