About Illinois Prison Project:

Deeply ingrained systemic racism. Extraordinarily long sentences. No parole or mid-sentence review. These are just some of the factors that contribute to mass incarceration in Illinois. The prison system makes no room for compassion, nor is there recognition within the criminal legal system that people change or grow.

By creating many ways into the prison but almost no way out, Illinois’ criminal legal system has wrought extraordinary moral and fiscal costs for individuals and communities. At the Illinois Prison Project, we fight against regressive policies, racist practices, and a system that treats people as disposable with a mission focused on hope, compassion, and humanity. ‍

Through advocacy, public education, and direct representation of thousands of needlessly incarcerated people, we bring hope to and fight in community with incarcerated people and their loved ones for a brighter, more humane, more just system for us all.

This weeks discussion:

Felony Disenfranchisement

Our prisons are in crisis. Decades of racist policies have seen the mass imprisonment of tens of thousands of largely Black and Brown people. Already cramped and decrepit conditions grew even more perilous as COVID-19 raged through prisons. Yet, through felony disenfranchisement, incarcerated people have been silenced, unable to hold those in power to account. Join the Illinois Prison Project for a discussion about the fight to restore a fundamental civil right for people incarcerated in Illinois.
