Thank You!

For those of you who joined us on May 23-24 in New York City to benefit the Mental Health Project of the Urban Justice Center, we are eternally grateful for your support. For those of you who have not had a chance to lend your support, please view the powerful video of their work below.


As part of our community outreach efforts, JusticeAid hosted a panel discussion at the New York City Bar Association about barriers to justice for people with mental health issues: JUSTICE, MENTAL HEALTH & INCARCERATION, moderated by Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Michael Winerip and featuring Dr. Bobby Cohen, former Medical Director at Rikers and current member of the Board of Correction; Ann-Marie Louison, Director of Adult Behavioral Health at the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services (CASES); Janos Marton, Director of Policy and Campaigns at JustLeadershipUSA and leader #CLOSErikers; and Koretta McClendon, Peer Advisor at the Columbia Psychiatric Fellowship.

All great stuff. We’ll close with a clip from the concert. Stay tuned for more!
