Cover including words National Black Women's Justice Institute and image with sign Black Women's Lives MatterFor February 2022, we are sharing our Sunday contributions with the New York City based organization, The National Black Women’s Justice Institute. NBWJI seeks to dismantle pathways to criminalization and confinement for black women and girls, to increase and enhance opportunities with and for formerly incarcerated women and girls, and to promote a justice system centered on healing, rather than causing more harm and trauma.  (some resources)

NBWJI Mission:

We research, elevate, and educate the public about innovative, community-led solutions to address the criminalization of Black women and girls. We aim to dismantle the racist and patriarchal U.S. criminal-legal system and build, in its place, pathways to opportunity and healing.

We envision a society that respects, values, and honors the humanity of Black women and girls, takes accountability for the harm it has inflicted, and recognizes that real justice is healing.

Please be generous.  Because we are still not all meeting in person, you can contribute online or send a check to the RYSEC office.

Please mark your check or online donation “Sunday Sharing,” to be sure it’s split between our sharing partner and support for the programs of the Society. Checks may be mailed to: RYSEC, 4450 Fieldston Road, Riverdale, NY 10471.
