Mass Commutations in New York: Virtual Event
Monday, April 6 at 6-7:30pm
Join Survived and Punished NY and spend some time together online learning about criminalized survivors and Cuomo’s clemency powers. We’ll collectively get our creative juices flowing and make artwork to amplify our demand that Governor Cuomo free survivors immediately.
Not an artist? Don’t worry! We’ll have several pieces of art pre-made art that you can copy/use as inspiration, and we need your voice/presence regardless. We’re still working on an action plan but we will be using folk’s creations to put the pressure on Cuomo. Stay tuned!
