The New Jersey Training School for Boys (“Jamesburg”) opened its doors on June 28, 1867.
On June 28, we will stand together, outside its gates, to declare that 150 years is enough!
With this campaign, we are lifting our collective voices to transform New Jersey’s youth incarceration system into a community-based system of care by closing Hayes and Jamesburg-the state’s girls’ youth prison and the largest youth prison for boys, respectively.

When: Wednesday, June 28 from noon to 1:30 pm
