we have invited other foundations and individual donors to join forces with us. Our grant making is focused on efforts that  significantly decrease the involvement of women, families, and communities in all phases and aspects of the justice system, with a particular focus on closing Rikers Island, while simultaneously investing in incarceration alternatives that promote justice, safety, and overall well-being.   Your readers might want to tune into HBO’s feature-length documentary True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality to learn more about the critical work that Bryan is doing in confronting our nation’s history of racial inequality. Readers interested in attending the dinner and supporting the foundation can call 212.245.6570 ext. 21 or visit nywf.org/event/radical-generosity-dinner.
