    In 1844, some of New York City's leading citizens, concerned about brutal conditions in prisons and the lack of support services for former prisoners, convened the first meeting of the Correctional Association of New York. Throughout its century-and-a-half of service, the Association has focused public attention on the misguided efforts to use prison as a salve for serious social problems. The Association believes that the criminal justice system, in general, and prison issues, in particular, are among the most pressing civil rights issues of our time and can no longer be treated separately from other public policy concerns. Through advocacy, public education, and developing and promoting workable alternative proposals, the Correctional Association seeks to create a more fair, efficient and humane criminal justice system and a more safe and just society.
