For Immediate Release Getting Out and Staying Out

Statement on First Step Act from GOSO President Mark Goldsmith

Getting Out and Staying Out (GOSO) is proud to be part of a coalition advocating in Washington for meaningful criminal justice reform. In particular, GOSO is pushing for reforms to improve prison conditions, enhance productive reentry services and make sentencing changes that will have real positive impacts for our communities and criminal justice-involved young people.

Forging Ahead with our 3-Year Plan

Early last spring, GOSO made an appeal to supporters to help with our recovery from the East Harlem explosion and jump-start a 3-year to dramatically increase capacity and improve program services. We are deeply grateful for the wonderful response we received and are pleased to announce that we have signed a lease on a highly visible street-level space a few doors down from our East Harlem office. Renovations are virtually completed and we expect to be moved into the new space by the second week of January.
