Correction Association of NYC

We were instrumental in the creation of a separate system for youth convicted of crimes in 1899; saw to the ending of corporal punishment as a matter of policy in state prisons and jails; were among the first to address the crisis of AIDS in prison in the 1980s; and helped to establish in-prison vocational, educational and substance abuse treatment programming.
