#StopThePlan—Community Outreach Party

Come and learn all about what Major de Blasio's borough-based jail expansion plan is, why No New Jails is against it, and how No New Jails is fighting back against it. This event takes place at the same time de Blasio is on CNN at a town hall about his presidential campaign. We will also ensure, through social media, that his violent jail expansion plan will not be swept under the rug.

No New Jails NYC is a network of residents, community members, and activists fighting Mayor de Blasio’s jail expansion plan. NNJ calls for the immediate closure of Rikers without building new jails. Instead of spending billions on more jails, we call for massive investment to address the needs of communities targeted by criminalization. We organize towards a safer NYC free of confinement and surveillance and filled with opportunities for all people to thrive.
