"What's important to consider about jail settings is that they're incredibly dehumanizing & they dehumanize individuals who pass through them. There's not really a true respect for the rights of the detained." - Dr. Homer Venter #BeyondRikers #CLOSErikers
This Sunday, Katal's @DonnaHylton will be speaking on a panel about NY's broken #parole system. Join us at Plymouth Church from 12:30-1:30pm to learn how parole reform -- including our #LessIsMoreNY bill-- is urgently needed in the fight to #closeRikers.
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has an ambitious plan to replace Rikers Island with new jails throughout the boroughs, but a growing coalition of people is determined to stop it.
For @MarshallProj, @MauriceChammah looks at the challenges to #closeRikers. https://t.co/fseQv0Gxuw
