ACTION, TEACHING & INNOVATION
We support communities working to bring about the end of mass incarceration—through anti-carceral lawyering, an impactful learning lab, and the innovation of bold new ideas.
Working directly with communities and campaigns, our legal advocacy tackles the roots of mass incarceration. From resisting the growth of carceral infrastructure, to seeding collective interventions that target plea bargaining, to building up the power of juries, we make concrete steps forward against mass incarceration.
A Learning Lab
Through convenings, novel training programs, and an intensive clinical program, we are helping to grow new tools to help end mass incarceration – and training the future leaders who will put them to use.
