Our campaigns organize to win a world where we end mass incarceration and invest in things that truly keep our communities safe.
Abolishing Death By Incarceration
Policies that disregard people's capacity for transformation and condemn them to die in prison are cruel. We fight to end mandatory life without parole sentences, because everyone should have a chance to show that they've turned around their lives.
Advocating for the Pennsylvania DAs Association to Support Elder Parole
We mobilize people to advocate with their district attorneys and the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association -which has a powerful voice in Harrisburg- to support parole review for aging people in prison. It's time to reunite families.
Second Chances at the Board of Pardons
In Pennsylvania, the Board of Pardons should be a pathway home for incarcerated people who have turned around their lives. We campaign to have the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons recommend more people for clemency.
Mobile Crisis Teams: Creating Public Safety Alternatives to Police
We fight to reduce police budgets so we can invest in alternatives such as non police unarmed first responders and community based programs that break the cycle of violence.
Past Campaigns: Fighting to #FreeTheVulnerable During the Pandemic
During the height of the global pandemic incarcerated people were squeezed tightly together and it was not possible for them to socially distance. We fought to bring people home to save lives.
Past Campaigns: Overturning the ‘Book Ban’ in PA Prisons
In 2018 we and our allies successfully overturned a policy that banned ‘books to prisoners’ programs and also a ban on family members sending books to their loved ones from publishers and booksellers.
Past Campaigns: Judge Accountability Table
Along with our movement partners we helped launch a coalition that coordinates court watching programs and organizes non-partisan candidate forums to shed a light on what's happening inside of Philly courts.
