Join us on Tuesday, September 22 at 11 a.m. for a conversation on the Borough-Based Jails Program and the closing of the Rikers Island Jail Complex.  The panel will not only examine the design and construction aspects of the project, but also what the borough-based jails and the closing of Rikers mean for decarceration and addressing the racial and social inequalities of the city.
