Innovation and Ideas

Breaking down silos between diverse groups of thinkers and doers, we help to nurture and catalyze bold new ideas to end mass incarceration.



The Institute to End Mass Incarceration is the creator and publisher of Inquest, an online forum where the people doing the hard work of decarceration come together from diverse backgrounds and experiences to share and advance decarceral ideas, and to be heard.
