A portrait of Peter Wagner.

Executive Director
I need your help. The Prison Policy Initiative is at the forefront of the movement for criminal justice reform. We've protected our democracy from the prison system and the poorest families in this country from the predatory prison telephone industry. And our timely and accessible reports recruit new and stronger allies to our movement.

our long-term viability depends on people like you investing in our work.

I thank you for investing in our work towards a more just tomorrow.
