Get Involved

Milk Not Jails is an all volunteer-run statewide initiative working to build a new urban-rural dynamic. We believe that building relationships between urban and rural people is critical to transcending the current political and economic climate. Relationship building takes time, and we need your help to make the connections necessary for our grassroots movement.

    The food coop to which I belong in Albany NY purchases a majority of its dairy products from farmers w/i 100 miles. In fact all of our purchases make local a priority. There are “Local” labels indicating all such products. If it would help, I can provide the names of the local dairy farmers. I can also send your fact sheet to our buyers, and submit an article to our monthly newsletter.

    I am totally involved. I am a peson with a felony history and was just released from NYSDOCS after serviing nearly 13 years of a 16 year sentence. throughout that timespan i enrolled in the Bard Prison Initiative (BPI) and completed my BA in social studies with a focus on environmental studies. within that scope I particulalry focused on food, agriculture. i completed my degree from Bard by doing a senior research project on food and penality and the sociology around such an issue in the Hudson Valley, in particular within the NYS DOCS.
