In December 1846 William Seward publicly heralded the formation of the Correctional Association of New York (CANY) and a body tasked with monitoring conditions within state prisons. Not quite two centuries later, the SHM has partnered with CANY as part of its ongoing exhibit on the Seward family connections to the Auburn Correctional Facility. Both organizations will discuss their entwined pasts and future collaborations. This event will take place at the Equal Rights Heritage Center and is free and open to the public.
