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.
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.
Divesting from Police to Invest in Our Communities
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.
Holding Judges Accountable
In our work with the Judicial Accountability Table we coordinate court watching programs and shed a light on what's happening inside of courts in Philly and beyond.
Fighting to #FreeTheVulnerable During the Pandemic
With the crisis of a global pandemic gripping all our lives, incarcerated people are squeezed even tighter. We're fighting 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.
