Fighting Jail Expansion Webinar

January 10, 2023

Across the country, communities are fighting against efforts to expand the carceral system and build new jails. In this webinar we brought together activists who have pushed back against jail expansion to discuss strategies they employed to prevent new jails from being built and give an overview of the tools and support that Prison Policy Initiative can provide to support these efforts.

The Real News Network has also created a transcript of the webinar, available here. The transcript may contain errors.

The resources below were curated and shared by the Prison Policy Initiative and our webinar panelists from Building Justice in Berks, Families for Justice as Healing, and the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls. We hope they will be useful in your follow-up work fighting jail expansion projects in your communities.
