We want to hear from you!

Are you using our work? Have a question about making a donation? Want to invite Peter Wagner to speak at your event? Tell us about it.

Everything you see on the Prison Policy Initiative and Prison Gerrymandering Project websites is the work of a handful of staff and volunteers. We don't have the resources to respond to every message we get, but please know that every message is read and greatly appreciated.

Family members looking for help for incarcerated loved ones may want to check our list of organizations that provide legal services.

Journalists working on deadline on stories about the Census Bureau's prison miscount, the prison phone industry, jail letter bans, or sentencing enhancement zones, are likely to receive a faster response by the form below, but may also request a phone number. Either way, and on any topic, Peter Wagner will call journalists back as soon as possible.

Journalists writing stories on deadline about the Census Bureau's prison miscount, the prison phone industry, jail letter bans, or sentencing enhancement zones, you are welcome to call this google voice number (413) 961-0002 which will ring my office, cell and home phones in addition to sending me a message via the form below.

If you are not a journalist, please use the form below. -Peter Wagner, Executive Director
