As a new elected leadership – mayoral team and City Council – is sworn into City Hall, we are offered a unique opportunity to reflect on how philanthropy leverages its collective power to inform critical issues that will shape the future of NYC. In this moment, philanthropy can leverage its power to amplify the experiential knowledge of advocates, organizers, and nonprofit leaders on the ground to shape and inform city policies, together.

Join us for a discussion with advocates, organizers, and nonprofit leaders on how this administration affects their organizational work toward lasting change within our criminal legal and policing systems; what the administration means for movement toward criminal legal and policing reform/transformation in NYC, more broadly; and how philanthropy can respond responsibly.  

  • What the incoming administration (mayoral team and City Council) means for movement for criminal legal and policing reform/transformation in NYC, including campaigns such as #LessIsMoreNY, #CloseRikers, End Solitary NYC, as well as efforts to divest from those systems and reinvest in communities. 

  • How funders can respond resposibly and in allyship with advocates, organizers, nonprofit leaders, and impacted communities in movement toward decarceration, ending mass criminalization and incarceration, as well as police brutality in this new era.
