New Yorkers Stand United To End Prison Slavery: Call Your State Reps Now!

13th Forward is a coalition of national and New York-based organizations working to end forced labor in NY prisons. Color Of Change is a part of this coalition — and we need help from people like you to end the exploitation of Black and Brown New Yorkers.

Our campaign supports The No Slavery in NY Act (S.225B/ A.3412B) which would end the exception that allows for modern-day slavery for people incarcerated in New York's prisons and jails and prohibit the use of force and any other threats of punishment to compel the labor of incarcerated people. On June 6, the No Slavery in NY Act passed the Senate on a bipartisan basis and now we need the assembly to act when they come back in session.

CALL YOUR NEW YORK STATE REP. Tell your state Assemblymember to support critical legislation that would end forced prison labor and provide protections for incarcerated workers. Fill out this form to connect with your state representatives automatically. We'll provide a script and talking points.

When you click the MAKE THE CALL button, the system will call your phone and patch you through. PLEASE HAVE YOUR PHONE READY.
