No New Jails NYC would like to thank our abolitionist comrades—past, present, and future—who have contributed to our collective strength, political analysis, and power, and have shown us that a world without police, prisons, jails, and borders is possible and necessary for our collective liberation. We would especially like to thank all of you who have struggled alongside us this past year to push for a city without Rikers and without new jails, and to uplift the contributions, leadership, and vision of our incarcerated organizers. It is our duty and honor to fight alongside you all.
