What is WCJA?

A broad-based group of women with lived experience within the criminal justice system, thought leaders, and executives from the community non-profits.

To imagine and invent a transformed criminal justice system that compassionately and safely serves women, reinvesting in the enriched services and housing support that they and their communities need to succeed

Our mission is to help transform the NYC justice system for women, in deep and sustainable ways while elevating the experiences of personally impacted women,. To strategize and create a tangible plan that entails moving women, and women with children, from the Rose M. Singer Center on Riker’s Island to safe settings with appropriate services in their communities.
