Mission Statement

The Community is a nonprofit devoted to fostering a motivating sense of community among those involved and interested in anti-mass incarceration efforts (everything from smart-on-crime policies to prison conditions to reentry).

Description

We are a 5½ year old AMI (anti-mass incarceration) organization of several highly educated currently and formerly incarcerated people and their loved ones devoted to fostering a motivating sense of community among those involved or interested in AMI efforts (anything from preventative measures to prison conditions and legitimate rehabilitation opportunities to reentry). We have so far focused on Wisconsin with a newsletter (the most widely-read AMI publication in the state with 7,000 incarcerated readers - nearly a third of the prison population - and over 400 free readers) and our STEM from Concrete Initiative to provide STEM education opportunities to formerly and currently incarcerated people, but we are now expanding our focus after receiving two grants. We need at least one volunteer to help no more than 15 hours a week with clerical and research tasks. They can be anywhere in the world so long as they have a computer and a telephone.
