LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TPW-NY HISTORY!
In June 2020, a group of community based organizations (CBOs) providing programming inside the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) met to form a coalition in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their ability to continue providing services to their participants. After several meetings, these organizations realized the opportunity to support one another beyond this one point in time.
In November 2020, this coalition met with The Transformative In-Prison Workgroup. Recognizing the shared mission and values, the coalition decided to launch a New York Chapter of the TPW.
In April 2021, the TPW-NY gathered together CBOs throughout the state to learn more about the coalition [See the video recording below]. The coalition gathers every third Thursday of the month at 3pm EST. For more information on becoming a member email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
