March for Justice: From here to Statehouse

March for Justice is a 180-mile, 18-day march sponsored by the Alliance of Families for Justice from New York City to the state Capitol in Albany. This march for justice calls for:

  1. The closure of the historically abusive Attica Correctional Facility

  2. The elimination of human rights violations in all state prisons and jails

  3. Comprehensive reforms of the criminal and youth justice systems

The march will begin in late August and culminate in a massive rally and press conference on September 13, 2017, the anniversary of the Attica uprising and massacre.


This March for Justice is an important civil rights event. Our march from NYC to Albany will include teach ins along the way. Caravans from other parts of NYS will take place simultaneously to join us in Albany. Different days of the march will focus on different issues. A mural project engaging local artists will be part of the march so that in each town where a press conference and teach-in event is held, there will be a mural to memorialize the march. There are numerous prisons, jails and colleges located along the Hudson River between NYC and Albany. These provide excellent sites for teach-ins and press conferences.
