Purpose: The New York City Program Council is a coalition of correctional programming organizations. Co-founded by the Rikers Debate Project, the Council formed to advocate for currently incarcerated individuals and to ensure their programs remain at a high quality level and are being delivered efficiently. Over the years we’ve shared our work with elected officials and drafted legislation pertaining to the program environment in NYC Department of Corrections facilities. All members of the program council represent organizations who are working or have worked delivering programs in Department of Corrections facilities across New York City.
The Program Council is hosting the first public forum featuring all announced candidates for Manhattan DA this Tuesday, July 14 2020. This will be a virtual forum. Sign up to attend here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/manhattan-district-attorney-candidate-forum-tickets-109313634022
