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.

      Hi Anne, we do in fact publish research on federal prisons. Our report “Mass Incarceration: The Whole Pie 2017” might be a good starting point if you are interested in federal prison populations. You can find it here: https://www.prisonpolicy.org/reports/pie2017.html
