You are invited to share your ideas about reimagining our justice system for women at a call-to-action event co-sponsored by the Women’s Community Justice Association, the Center for Justice, and Council Member Helen Rosenthal.
The event will include a discussion on how to:
- Promote the expansion of alternative pre-detention/incarceration programming to reduce the number of women at Rosie’s below 200
- Close Rosie’s by 2020 and support the reopening of a new standalone centralized, secure, service enriched trauma-informed building in Manhattan for 100-150 people who identify as women
- Reinvest the savings from closing Rikers to better serve women, families, and their communities #BEYONDrosies
Round-trip metro cards and light refreshments will be available.
