Dear YNY Community,
I’m looking forward to seeing you all at our upcoming exhibition next Tuesday to celebrate the achievements of our extraordinary young women in our very first all-women’s diversion program. These young women, most of whom are 16 and 17 years old, have been prosecuted as adults in New York State, and all will have their cases dismissed and sealed now that they have successfully completed the YNY program. Find our invitation and press release below.
Please do not underestimate what a wonderful gift your attendance is to our young participants. Each of the young New Yorkers has an extraordinary depth of human experiences and profound insights on social issues which often goes unacknowledged. Your attention to their creative voices offers them the experience of being heard and celebrated. Finally, YNY relies on your generosity to run its court-mandated programs. Please consider becoming an Everyday Hero by donating a dollar a day to partner with our young people.
Finally, a warm thank you to the Pinkerton Foundation for supporting our program; to Robert A.M. Stern Architects for sponsoring our exhibition; and Loci Architecture PC for providing us with large format printing.
