NYUJ supports bold action by all branches of government to fix a deeply flawed criminal justice system that punishes the poor and communities of color, tears families apart, and makes New Yorkers less safe. NYUJ believes that New Yorks criminal justice system must ensure that equal access to justice for anyone accused in New York State is neither denied nor limited on the bases of age, race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin or religion. NYUJ is committed to building the necessary advocacy infrastructure to support and supplement New York- based community and advocacy organizations that share this vision of reform. NYUJ is fiscally sponsored by the Dream Corps. NYUJ OVERVIEW In less than one year, NYUJ has had a significant impact in the fight for criminal justice reform in New York. NYUJs highly effective public engagement in support of the key reforms enacted earlier this year clearly made a difference. And the extensive research and polling NYUJ has conducted in the past few weeks provides a great foundation for further progress. In the coming year and beyond, there is much more work to be done to fix the broken system.
