28 people have died in New York City jails since 2022. With its failing infrastructure and abhorrent conditions, Rikers Island is a moral stain on our city. Please join Rabbi Hilly Haber in conversation with Sarita Daftary, Co-Director of Freedom Agenda, and Benjamin Heller, Senior Program Asociate of the Vera Institute's Greater Justice NY Team to learn more about the crisis on Rikers Island and the movement to reimagine city jails.
