Take Action!


Thank you for supporting and uplifting justice-impacted women and gender expansive populations. Here are some steps you can take today to take action:

  • Make a donation to the Women’s Community Justice Association.
  • While falsely claiming to end solitary confinement, New York City is moving forward with a plan that will clearly continue solitary confinement. It will also clearly violate the HALT act. Please use this Phone to Action Tool to Email, Tweet, & Call NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson to urge him and the city council to truly end solitary confinement in NYC.
    • You can also reach this tool by texting HALT to 52886.
  • Amplify and uplift this powerful Op-Ed from Anisah, a HALT Solitary campaign leader, urging NYC Council Speaker Johnson to Truly End Solitary Confinement.
  • Take action for #ParoleJusticeNY! Please use this quick and easy Phone 2 Action Tool TODAY to call, email, and tweet at your NY State legislators and urge them to pass the Elder Parole and Fair & Timely Parole bills to bring hope and healing to families across the state.
  • The 2021 elections will bring in a wave of new elected officials who will take office in 2022. We need to ensure they are all committed to closing Rikers, and that they are listening to and learning from the people most impacted. Read & share this tweet from Freedom Agenda member Angel Tueros.
  • New York City has an opportunity to start closing Rikers Island now, and begin repairing the harm it has done to communities through the Renewable Rikers Act. Email your representatives to ask that they act now to make Renewable Rikers a reality. To learn more, check out this  interview on On The Count radio. 
  • Housing keeps families together & builds strong communities. But for New Yorkers with convictions, it’s a right that’s often denied. Tell NYC Council to protect people with convictions from discrimination by passing Fair Chance for Housing Legislation. 
  • The tragedy of the Central Park Five case is now well-known, but New York State law still allows police to interrogate children without their guardians present. Sign this petition in support of the #Right2RemainSilent campaign led by youth organizers at BronxConnect.
