YOUNG NEW YORK SILENT ART AUCTION & FUNDRAISER

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Young New York at Tuesday night's fundraiser. A special thanks to all of the artists who donated work, White Box Gallery, Bomb Lager, Maimonide of Brooklyn and the YNY team––all of their hard work made for a fantastic evening. The funds raised from Tuesday night will go towards a series of art workshops that give a voice to 16-and 17-year-olds charged as adults in the criminal justice system in New York. Big hugs and big thanks again!

ABOUT YOUNG NEW YORK: Legally classified as adults in New York State, 16- and 17-year-olds are included in the adult criminal justice system from arrest through sentencing. Young New York (YNY) is an art-focused social justice project that raises awareness about this issue and the need for positive and constructive alternatives to the school-to-prison pipeline. Young New York is supported by the Goodman Fellowship at Columbia University and Brooklyn Defender Services.
