The only @nygovcuomo to show up to our replica #solitaryconfinement cell in Albany this week was made of cardboard. We renew our invitation to Cuomo and Commissioner Annucci to spend 24 hours in solitary to experience a small part of the torture that thousands of New Yorkers are being subjected to. #HALTSolitary #solitaryistorture #prisonreform #challengingincarceration

NAN National Organizer Isabel Zeitz-Moskin and NAN Second Chance Committee Chair Victor Pate talking about the need to #RestoretheVote to people on parole in New York State. It makes no sense that full citizens of our community cannot participate in their civil rights. 17 other states and D.C. already allow all people to vote who live in their communities. We will push for this in every state until we end Jim Crow and Reconstruction-era policies that explicitly and intentionally disenfranchise people of color. One in 24 Black voters in New York are disenfranchised. 3/4 of disenfranchised people are Black and Latinx. @letnyvote #restorethevoteny #HALTSolitary #MLK50
