About NYUJ

New Yorkers United for Justice (NYUJ) is New York’s foremost criminal justice reform coalition, comprised of more than a dozen local and national nonprofit organizations on the forefronts of civil rights, social justice, and legal advocacy and all deeply invested in criminal justice reform in New York State. The NYUJ coalition of organizations is bipartisan, interfaith, and diverse.

NYUJ promotes urgent, common sense reforms to the criminal justice system in the Empire State to improve the fairness of the system, increase public safety, and reduce incarceration. NYUJ does this by educating the public about the criminal justice system and its flaws; supporting officials with the information, tools, and resources they need to make the right decisions about criminal justice reforms; and preventing the spread of misinformation about the system and the people impacted by it.

NYUJ supports bold action by all branches of the government to drive out racism from the system, to treat poor and rich communities equally under the law, to protect the integrity of families impacted by the justice system, and to make all New Yorkers safer. Fundamentally, NYUJ works to ensure that equal access to justice in New York State is neither denied nor limited on the basis of age, race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, religion, or any other improper basis.

NYUJ is a fiscal project of DreamCorps.
