SRLP signs letter to the Board of Corrections to address suicidality in NYC jails

As we mourn the death of Kalief Browder and the many other New Yorkers who die through State-induced violence, SRLP joins activists from across the city in calling on the Board of Corrections to make wholly new and meaningful changes to how suicidality is cared for in the City jails. We request that outside experts not related to the criminal system determine these very necessary changes. Read our initial letter here. SRLP looks forward to informing the Board about the many ways in which TGNCI people are particularly susceptible to suicidality due to the many institutional and inter-personal oppression we experience, particularly while in government custody.
