Healing communities by freeing our people
Join us to take the abolition movement to the Pennsylvania Capitol
"Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chester—these are the epicenters of violence.
But you know what they are too? They are the epicenters of mass incarceration. You can’t separate these two issues."
— Robert Saleem Holbrook, Executive Director
Bringing people power to the capitol
Philadelphia County is the world's leading jurisdiction in sentencing people to die in prison. This isn't "life without parole" — it's a sentence of death by incarceration. Together we can work to bring thousands of our community members back home.
Incarceration is not the solution
Pennsylvanians are now serving astronomical rates of death by incarceration, while our communities continue to suffer
in prisons in Pennsylvania
than their white neighbors
ensuring people die behind bars
Imagine the mindset of a person who had prepared themselves to die in prison, but now they're able to be with their family—to live and to die free.
