The Correctional Association’s three statewide coalitions mobilize diverse groups of people to take action for change. Together, we are shifting the power dynamics of criminal justice policy making.
- The Coalition for Women Prisoners is an alliance of individuals and organizations dedicated to making the system more responsive to the needs and rights of women. We work together to promote criminal justice policies and practices that make sense for women, that raise the standard of living for all, and that strengthen families and communities.
- The Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement (NYCAIC) brings together advocates, formerly incarcerated persons, family members of currently incarcerated people, concerned community members, lawyers, and individuals in the human rights, health, and faith communities throughout New York State to achieve sweeping reform of New York’s use of solitary confinement and other forms of extreme isolation in state prisons and local jails.
- Challenging Incarceration is a growing statewide, multi-campaign, multi-issue collective that aims to: 1) End Mass Incarceration; 2) Promote Community Empowerment; 3) End State Violence and Torture; and 4) End Structural Racism and all Intersectional Identity-Based Oppression in New York while protecting the rights of Black, Latino, Asian, Muslim, and Native people; women; immigrants; LGBTI people; impoverished and working class people; people with mental health needs; and all people of New York City and New York State.
