Mission Statement

The project derives from the growing concern of community members, community-based organizations, local government agencies, and families regarding long term and limitless prison sentences sanctioned through state legislature. In effect, this communal grievance has fueled the initial inspiration for participants to develop a plan for addressing the problem and for identifying its key issues through the organization of such initiative. TAKING ACTION The purpose of organizing this public forum relating to long term and life without parole (LWOP) sentences is to work cooperatively to set goals, explore alternatives, and develop strategic plans of action that outline processes and set forth strategies agreed upon by local residents.
