Support families of incarcerated people 

Families are the building block of every community. We help families overcome the financial, social and emotional loss when a loved one is incarcerated and help them prepare for his or her successful re-entry. 

 

Empower them as advocates

Families experience a steep learning curve with many obstacles after losing a loved one to incarceration. Their firsthand experiences motivate and educate them to become their own best advocates for civil rights and criminal justice reform.

 

help marshal their voting power

The loss of voting rights of the formerly incarcerated remains a significant obstacles to criminal justice reform. Through advocacy and voting power, we can push reform-based legislation that help people return to productive society.
