Closing New Jersey’s Youth Prisons

Several Not In Our Town board members attended the June 28th rally in support of the transformation of New Jersey’s youth incarceration system into a community-based system of care by closing Hayes and Jamesburg-the state’s girls’ youth prison and the largest youth prison for boys, respectively.

That was just the first step on our journey to reimagining youth justice in New Jersey.

Please consider joining Ryan P. Haywood of the NJ Institute for Social Justice at the #150yearsisenough campaign meeting on Monday, August 14 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at the Virtual Healthcare Campus, located at 1000 Atlantic Avenue in Camden, as we discuss the next steps for the campaign.

Please RSVP to Juvenile Justice Campaign Manager Retha Onitiri at ronitiri@njisj.org.
