Get Involved

Group shot of Freedom Agenda

We’re fighting 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 welcome you to join us to make this vision a reality.

Ways to Get Involved


Have you been impacted by incarceration? Do you want to see Rikers Island closed, and to see investments in the communities that have been harmed by Rikers and by mass incarceration?

We are investing in building the leadership and collective power of people who have been directly impacted by incarceration. Join us for member meetings on the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm, to take action together and to contribute your voice to this movement. Join our mailing list or message us at


We welcome allies who support our vision, and the leadership of directly impacted people, to join us and contribute your time and talents as an active supporter. Join our mailing list for updates, and follow us on social media.


We coordinate a coalition of organizations dedicated to our shared goals of closing Rikers, decarcerating New York City and to redefining public safety, on our communities’ terms. Join our mailing list for updates or contact
