2023 Proximity Gathering

29 Sep


Montgomery, Alabama


The Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth (CFSY) invites select partners to join us for an immersive, paradigm-shifting experience this fall. In September, we will gather corporate partners, key stakeholders, and members of the Incarcerated Children’s Advocacy Network (ICAN), as well as survivors of violence, for a two-day proximity gathering in historic Montgomery, AL. Our gathering will provide a deeply enriching opportunity to build knowledge and relationships with others – across corporations, sectors, and life experience – dedicated to racial justice, with a focus on undoing the harm caused by the extreme sentencing of youth in the United States and mass incarceration more broadly. Participants will come away with a powerful sense of how this fight aligns with their individual commitment to justice and their broader corporate social responsibility goals. If you would like to learn more, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with Christina Oliver, CFSY Senior Development Manager, at [email protected].

CFSY’s 2023 Honorees
