Over 2.6 million individuals currently confined in jail OR prison in America

And millions more on some form of probation or parole

Mass incarceration is an issue that needs to be dealt with. There really isn’t a one size fits all solution to this


Getting Involved

End mass incarceration

As people have many different reasons that lead them to get into these places and situations, what may work for some people will not work for others.

It happens too often

Individuals in prison are forgotten about by society, even in cases, by their own family, looked down upon; thus, leaving them worse off than when they entered the prison system.

When the only support these individuals find is through negative activities, and the position against them is to punish them, rehabilitation is far from the forefront.
