Utilizing a strategic model of research, policy analysis, prison-monitoring, coalition-building, leadership-development, and advocacy, the CA is an innovative and effective force for progressive change.
The Correctional Association of New York is an independent nonprofit that advocates for a more humane and effective criminal justice system and an equitable society. Founded in 1844, the CA is unique in its mission, vision, and impact. In 1846, the CA was granted a legislative mandate to monitor prisons and report findings to the public. We are the only such organization in New York - one of only two in the country - and are the only one advancing systemic change.
Our three projects – Juvenile Justice, Prison Visiting, and Women in Prison – work to:
• Stop the ineffective use of incarceration to address social problems
• Advocate for humane prison conditions
• Empower people directly affected by incarceration to become leaders
• Promote transparency and accountability in the justice systems.
