For 175 years, the Correctional Association of New York (CANY) has played a role in shaping and securing major criminal justice reform in New York State. It is the only independent organization in New York, and one of two nationally, with legal authority to inspect the state’s 54 prisons and confidentially communicate with incarcerated people about their experiences. As such, CANY annually conducts 10 comprehensive inspections of prisons as well as organizing confidential surveys and interviews with thousands of incarcerated people, all of which are used to inform its reform agenda and advocacy. Based on these findings, CANY recommends policy and practices changes to improve conditions and uphold the humanity and dignity of those most affected by incarceration. This funding will support CANY in its mission and work.
