Southerners on New Ground
The Bail Project
The Bail Project combats mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system—one person at a time.
We restore the presumption of innocence, reunite families, and challenge a system that criminalizes race and poverty. We’re on a mission to end cash bail and create a more just, equitable, and humane pretrial system.
Equal Justice Initiative
The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.
Voice of the Experienced
VOTE is a grassroots organization founded and run by formerly incarcerated people (FIP), our families and our allies. We are dedicated to restoring the full human and civil rights of those most impacted by the criminal (in)justice system. Together we have the experiences, expertise and power to improve public safety in Louisiana and beyond without relying on mass incarceration.
Felony Murder Elimination Project
We are the Felony Murder Elimination Project, a growing group of concerned citizens whose goal is the elimination of the Felony Murder Rule from California law. We strive not only to bring an end to the Felony Murder Rule but to bring relief to those who are serving harsh and manifestly disproportionate sentences by its application. It is our belief that everyone should be held accountable for their actions, but only in proportion to their participation in the crime they commit.
