NYS Prisoner Justice Conference Mission Statement

The mission of the New York State Prisoner Justice Conference is to bring together the varied and diverse organizations 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; to institute continuing communication after the conference; and to create a statewide movement for change, justice, compassion, and more human and humane solutions to social problems in place of reliance on incarceration.
