About Us

FREE THE PEOPLE
WESTERN NEW YORK

Free The People WNY is a coalition of formerly incarcerated people, directly affected people, activists, organizers, and attorneys that envision a world free from the violence and death of mass incarceration. We act together to dismantle a justice system built on white supremacy and oppression, one that dehumanizes people, and we work to create in its place anti-racist systems with the values of collective liberation and true justice at their core.
