Join #CLOSErikers on the steps of City Hall!

  • City Hall City Hall New York, NY

The #CLOSErikers campaign launched on the steps of City Hall in April 2016. One year later, we have grown in power and numbers, and achieved concrete wins. Mayor de Blasio has committed to shuttering the Rikers Island jails for good, and the Lippman Commission's final report recommended closure, as well as concrete policy reforms to reduce incarceration in New York city and state. 

We should all celebrate these important wins, but our work is not done! must continue to rganize, pressure takeholders, and make sure that impacted communitie emain at the enter of the process. We must ensure that the closure of Rikers happens in a timely manner, and results in a significantly smaller, more just and humane system overall.

Join the #CLOSErikers campaign, back on the steps of City Hall, as we celebrate this historic moment, and double down on our efforts to #CLOSErikers and #buildCOMMUNITIES! to let us know that you're coming!
