On June 28th, the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice will launch a grassroots campaign to end what the called “New Jersey’s failed experiment of youth incarceration” by engaging in action to close Hayes and Jamesburg – the state’s girls’ youth prison and the largest youth prison for boys, respectively.

The campaign is timed to coincided with the opening of Jamesburg on June 28, 1867–150 years ago.
