HELP US GET YOU THE DATA YOU NEED The Prison Policy Initiative specializes in producing the information that you need to support campaigns for justice in your state. Can you help us expand this work?

From now until the end of the year, you can double your impact: Every dollar you give will be matched by a generous donor (up to $250,000).

Thank you for your commitment to a more just society.
—Peter Wagner, Executive Director
