About Us

Freedom Agenda is a member-led project dedicated to organizing people and communities directly impacted by incarceration to achieve decarceration and system transformation. To build power and affect change, we engage formerly incarcerated people and their loved ones as members and leaders who drive campaigns that utilize a range of tactics including direct action, public education, narrative change, and issue-based lobbying. 

We advocate to decarcerate New York City, to defend the human rights of incarcerated people, to divest from systems of punishment, and to redistribute those resources to the people and communities that have been most harmed by mass criminalization and systemic racism.

We are investing in building the leadership and collective power of people who have been directly impacted by incarceration. Join us for monthly member meetings, to take action together and to contribute your voice to this movement. Fill out this form to become a member or message us at fa@urbanjustice.org.

We also welcome the support of allies and partners. Please join our general mailing list for updates.
