END THE CRIMINALIZATION OF SURVIVAL END THE CRIMINALIZATION OF SURVIVAL
We are the New York Affiliate of Survived & Punished
Survived & Punished (S&P) is a coalition of defense campaigns and grassroots groups committed to eradicating the criminalization of survivors of domestic and sexual violence and the culture of violence that contributes to it. The all-volunteer organization includes community organizers, survivor advocates, legal experts, and policy advocates including currently and formerly incarcerated survivors.
The national S&P coalition is led by a core of organizers from the survivor defense campaigns, the national Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign and the California-based Stand With Nan-Hui campaign; the Chicago-based organization, Love and Protect (formerly the Chicago Alliance to Free Marissa Alexander); and the California Coalition for Women Prisoners. S&P also has two strong statewide team based in California and New York focused on freeing criminalized survivors from prisons and detention centers through organizing and policy advocacy in the state.
This is what we care about This is what we care about
Survived & Punished NY affiliate is a collective dedicated to ending the criminalization of survival. We are the New York wing of Survived & Punished (S&P), a national coalition working in Chicago, New York and California. S&P organizes to de-criminalize efforts to survive domestic and sexual violence, support and free criminalized survivors, and abolish gender violence, policing, prisons, and deportations. S&P was founded in 2016 by organizers from the Stand With Nan-Hui defense campaign, California Coalition for Women Prisoners, Love & Protect (then known as Chicago Alliance to Free Marissa Alexander), and the national Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign. The New York collective formed a year later and has since hosted letter-writing events, launched a robust visiting program to NY prisons, established a quarterly inside/ outside newsletter, sent resources directly to incarcerated people, and organized campaigns to free all criminalized survivors.
