Award Winning Author Mary Buser - Lockdown On Rikers

WWW.MARYBUSER.COM

 

Lockdown on Rikers shines a light into the deepest and most horrific recesses of the criminal justice system, and shows how far it has really drifted from the ideals we espouse.

Mary Buser LCSW, worked as a clinical social worker in the Mental Health Department on Rikers Island during the Giuliani administration's celebrated crackdown on crime

She began her Rikers sojourn as a student intern at the Rose Singer Center, where she provided therapy to incarcerated women, including a support group for mothers in the island's nursery.

After earning her Master's degree, she returned to Rikers to work at the George Motchan Detention Center, a maximum security facility for male detainees. Here, she provided both individual and group therapy to the general population, as well as to the jail's mentally ill inmates.

Three years later, Ms. Buser was promoted to an assistant mental health chief. In this capacity, she supervised treatment at the "Mental Health Center," the 350-bed facility for the city jail system's most seriously mentally ill inmates.

Following her stint at the Mental Health Center, Ms. Buser worked at the Otis Bantum Correctional Center, which was structurally attached to the 500-cell Punitive Segregation Unit, aka, The Bing. Here, Ms. Buser supervised a mental health team in treating inmates held in solitary confinement, as punishment for various jailhouse infractions.

Prior to Rikers Island, Ms. Buser co-founded and served as Executive Director of The Samaritans of New York, a suicide prevention hotline. In this capacity, she assisted the New York City Police Department in the production of a suicide prevention film that was subsequently shown to all incoming cadets. Ms. Buser also testified before the New York City Council as to the extent of teenage suicide citywide.

Ms. Buser also worked at the Osborne Association's drug-rehab facility, El Rio, as well as at the Upper Manhattan Mental Health Center.

She received her Master's Degree from Columbia University.

PAPS MISSION STATEMENT

dT1hSFIwY0Rvdkx6TmpMVzFoYVd4amIyMHRiSGhoTG5ObGNuWmxjaTVzWVc0dmJXRnBiQzlqYkdsbGJuUXZhVzUwWlhKdVlXd3ZZWFIwWVdOb2JXVnVkQzlrYjNkdWJHOWhaQzkwWVhSME1GOHhMUzB0ZEcxaGFURTBaR00xTXpjMU9HWTVZakppWWpZN2FuTmxjM05wYjI1cFpEMURNRUpGUXp.jpgUntitled_1_.jpg
Azzurra Crispino - Co Founder - www.iheartpaps.org

We Believe:
*The prison-industrial complex, in all its forms, including; immigrant detention centers, city and county jails, as well as state and federal prisons, must be abolished. This is a social evil that must be eradicated. The prison-industrial complex does not keep the community safe; it profits the elite while ravaging our communities.

*We are committed to ending racism, classism, patriarchy, ableism, cis-gendered privilege and ALL other interrelated forms of oppression. We recognize the prison-industrial complex is a racist institution, trans prisoners are especially vulnerable, and that women currently have the highest increase in rate of incarceration.

*All prisoners, regardless of their innocence or guilt, are worthy of dignity and support.

*Creating a community of resistance, support, love and mutual aid across the razor wire is a revolutionary act.

*Transformative justice, restorative justice, non-violent conflict resolution, forgiveness and community rehabilitation can and will replace the prison-industrial complex.

*Supporting prison reforms likely to lead to the eventual complete abolition of the prison industrial complex, such as amnesty programs, abolition of solitary confinement past 15 days, decriminalization of non-violent crimes, etc., can and will lead to an eventual abolition of prisons.

*Supporting acts of resistance behind the razor wire, and letting the voices, needs actions and desires of prisoners be amplified.

*Building broad coalition and community for all who wish to support prisoners or eradicate prisons.

*Engaging in peaceful actions and demonstrations to achieve these goals here.
