 A New Yorker’s Guide to Building Community Care and Safety by Closing Rikers with No New Jails.

Close Rikers NOW, We Keep Us Safe is an opportunity and an open door, that describes the many ways we can all join hands to close Rikers without building any new jails. This living document was created by No New Jails NYC, with our incarcerated leaders, abolitionist elders, and many other communities that now includes you. We welcome all comments, questions, and suggestions on the plan, and look forward to how your ideas will transform our vision and subsequent versions of this document.
