In this hot summer of 2012, it’s important to remember all those who are in the various confines of the United States correctional system. The Correctional Association of New York, an organization advocating for prison justice since 1844, approached Social Ink about rejuvenating their site to reflect changing constituencies.
In 1846, the CA was granted authority by New York State Legislature to inspect prisons and to report its findings and recommendations to the public. The only private organization in New York with unrestricted access to prisons, the CA has remained steadfast in its commitment to inform the public debate on criminal justice for nearly 168 years. The CA utilizes its unique legislative mandate to expose abusive practices, educate the public and policymakers about what goes on behind prison walls, and advocate for systemic, lasting and progressive change.
With a large resource bank to import, various campaigns and coalitions to represent, the CANY needed a fresh look that also reflected the gravity of their work and the depths of their research. We’re happy today to announce the new Correctional Association site and to continue Social Ink’s proud tradition of doing good in the world with technology.
