I need your help. I co-founded the Prison Policy Initiative to put the problem of mass incarceration — and the perverse incentives that fuel it — on the national agenda. Over the last 16 years, our campaigns have protected our democracy from the prison system and protected the poorest families in this country from the predatory prison telephone industry. Our reports untangle the statistics and recruit new allies.

But now, more than ever, we need your help to put data & compassion into the conversation. Any gift you can make today be matched by other donors and go twice as far.

Thank you.

On June 25, New York State Senator Eric Schneiderman wrote in the Spanish-language daily newspaper, El Diario, about S2754, the Prisoner Census Adjustment Act, which would correct where prisoners are counted prior to redistricting. Read the op-ed: Phantoms of the Census / Fantasmas del Censo.
