GOOD_CALL A Project of Creative Visions Fiscal Sponsorship
Every year, there are over 300,000 arrests in NYC, and almost 50,000 people are sent to jail to await their trial, before they are convicted of any crime. These arrests are concentrated in low income communities, and although the vast majority are for low level misdemeanors, the impact of these arrests and the accompanying jail time can be devastating. Good Call is trying to change that.
Good Call runs a totally free, 24/7 hotline that enables people who are arrested to alert their loved ones and connect with a free lawyer right away, with just one phone call. Their goal is to ensure that everyone who gets arrested has a fair process and a just outcome, and isn't punished because of what they look like, where they live, or how much money they have.
Good Call launched their hotline in October of 2016 with legal support being provided by The Bronx Defenders, and recently launched their #GoodSummer campaign in the Bronx to raise awareness about their service. Donate today, and help Good Call protect youth from getting caught up in the criminal justice system this summer.
Good Call is a young organization, and is in the process of acquiring their own 501(c)3 nonprofit status. Until then, they are accepting tax deductable donations through fiscal sponsorship with Creative Visions.
