No New Jails NYC (NNJ) is a multiracial, intergenerational network of residents, community members, and activists fighting against Mayor Bill de Blasio’s jail expansion plan. NNJ calls for the immediate closure of Rikers without building new jails. Instead of spending billions of dollars on more jails, NNJ demands massive investment to address the needs of communities targeted by criminalization. Ultimately, NNJ is organizing towards a safer NYC free of confinement, surveillance and filled with opportunities for all people to thrive.
