Alliance of Families for Justice, and our statewide Justice Collective, are holding a conference in Albany, NY on November 15 and 16 focused on the impact of mass incarceration on families and communities. This will be the final conference in our series of six regional discussions on this subject that we have been holding throughout New York State over the last two years. We would love for you to join us for some or all of the program!
