Who We Are

Our Vision

A world where prisons are no longer necessary

Who We Are, What We Stand For

Our Mission is two-fold. Fair Chance Project represents a movement led by liberated lifers (formerly incarcerated men and women), prisoners and loved ones of term to life prisoners organized around the demand for just sentencing laws and fair parole practices. Additionally, the group integrates formerly incarcerated men and women back into society enabling them to “give back and to help build strong, self-sustaining communities”

Goals

  • That prisoners be released by the power of the BPH upon fulfilling all reasonable criteria for eligibility
  • That the Govenors power over parole suitability be reserved for the most egregious cases.
  • That former prisoners become a positive force in the lives of their communities
